INTRODUCTION. 



IT is a remarkable fact that, while the sister country of 
England can boast of numberless collections of old wills 
and testaments, Ireland, which has such a wealth of ancient 
churches, crosses, and monuments scattered over the length 
and breadth of the land, should possess so few documents of 
a testamentary character prior to the middle of the sixteenth 
century. 

Since the appearance, in 1780, of the volume of Royal 
and Noble WtllSy edited by Ducarel and Nichols, and 
the publication of the Testamenta Vetusta of Sir Harris 
Nicolas, various learned and archaeological societies in 
England, especially in more recent years, have printed col- 
lections of wills, stored in the Diocesan Registries and 
other repositories. To the Camden Society we are indebted 
for some, notably the Bury Wills ; the Surtees Society has 
printed some volumes of Yorkshire testaments ; and the 
Chetham Society has published several collections of wills 
and inventories. Besides these there are the Essex, Oxford, 
Exeter, Lincoln, and Carlisle Wills, with others too numerous 
to mention ; while Dr. Furnivall has edited, for the Early 
English Text Society, a volume of the Fifty Earliest English 
Wills ; and Mr. Reginald Sharp was entrusted, by the 
Corporation of London, with the task of preparing a 
Calendar of the wills proved and enrolled in the Court of 
Hustings, 1 258-1 688. 

The present Volume, which is a Register of the diocese 
of Dublin during the time of Archbishops Tregury and 



viii Introduction. 

Walton (145 7- 1 483), is the only official collection of wills for 
the fifteenth century known to be extant in this country ; 
and the Council of the Society of Antiquaries decided, some 
time ago, that, while its publications had included certain 
other documents of great interest and importance, the sole 
representative of a class of such historical and social impor- 
tance as these wills of the fifteenth century, ought to find a 
place among its issues. A few wills of Dublin citizens will 
be foxmd calendared in Sir J. T. Gilbert's Corporation 
Records (vol. i.),' and some eight or ten are in the collection 
known as the Christ Church Deeds (20th, 23rd, and 24th 
Reports of the Deputy Keeper of the Records). In the 
Obits and Martyrology of Christ Church are the names of 
about 120 testators who are recorded as having bequeathed 
either houses, money, or valuables to the church, from about 
the early part of the fifteenth century to the middle of the 
sixteenth ; none of their testaments are now forthcoming 
save those of Peter Higley and Joan Steven, which are to 
be found in the present Register. 

The wills of a people illustrate their manners and cus- 
toms, as well as the social condition of the various classes of 
testators, and while important to the genealogist, they are 
invaluable as material for social history and progress. Dr. 
Furnivall, in the quaint " Forewords," prefixed to his Fifty 
Earliest English Wills ^ remarks that: — "Both for the life and 
language of our old-time folk, their wills have always been 
acknowledged as most worthful. They let you into the 
state of every home ; they use words not found in books." 

The Register is now deposited in the manuscript-room 
attached to the Library of Trinity College, Dublin, where it 
is classed as £. 3. 32. In Dr. John Lyon's Catalogue of the 
MSS. (p. 178) it is described as "Registrum Testamentorum 
visitationum quarundam et processum curiae Metropoliticae 
Diocesis Dublin sub praesulatu Mich Tregury & Job Walton 



> Two of them are fully transcribed in the Irish Archaological Miscellof^, vol. i. 



IntrodtteUon. ix 

Arjporum Dufe. — N.B. Hie codex est originale Registrum." 
In the Catalogue of Manuscripts, English and Irish, 
printed at Oxford in 1697 (p. 41 of the Irish portion), 
the volume is described as " Registrum Testamentorum 
Dioces. Dublin, tempore Jo. Archiep Dublin: 1472. fol. B. 
52." Under what circumstances, and at what time, the 
Register came to be placed in Trinity College Library, is 
not now known. 

The manuscript is a folio, 1 2 by 9 inches, consisting of 
63 paper leaves, and the writing is in a small, clear hand, of 
the fifteenth century, with margins varying from i^ to i^ 
inches broad ; a page, when filled, contains, on an average, 
40 lines. The few strictly ecclesiastical documents in the 
volume, and the fragments at the end, are written in a style 
quite different from the set hand of the exclusively testamen- 
tary portions, and the former seem to have been copied into 
the book by careless or ignorant scribes, as the text is 
generally corrupt. The volume is bound in boards, and the 
separate libelli which compose it, were put together care- 
lessly, the present paging giving no clue to the proper 
sequence, as the dates in the Register are not strictly con- 
secutive. In many cases the initial letter in the word 
" Inventarium " is ornamental, with the sacred monogram 
placed inside a flourish, and at the head of fol. 26% which 
contains a protest by the Abbot and Convent of St. Thomas 
the Martyr, who is described as giving his head to the 
sword, is a rude representation of a mitre pierced by a 
sword. At the head of fol. 16 occur the following old class- 
marks under some former arrangement: — B. 52; J.J.J. 21 
and A. 2. 30, from which it would appear as if, at one time, 
this page had been the first in the volume. It is remarkable 
that in the printed Catalogue of 1697, this would appear to 
have been the page from which the entitlement and class- 
marks were taken, and it bears evident traces of having been 
placed first. Dr. Abbott suggests that the Tregury portion 
was not bound with the other at the time the Catalogue was 



X Introduction. 

printed from the one compiled in i688. The mention of Arch- 
bishop John [Walton], and the year 1472, are emphatic as 
marking that, in 1697, the Tregury portion of the present 
volume had not been united with the other. On fol. 9, which 
is otherwise blank, is to be found, "ihc mercy Lady help 
me at my ned Nou and hevyr." The names "Jacobus 
Norreys, Isabella Norreys, Ka?ina Man," appear written, in 
a set hand, on fol. 15. On fol. 52®, is written the name 
*' Joneta Archeboll," and at the top of fol. 59, " ihuyh — iliu 
nasarenyn' — ih — ihu nasa." The watermarks in the volume 
are quaint, and well worthy the attention of experts in such 
matters. 

A short account of the state of the law regarding the 
disposition of property by testators at this period, will be 
necessary for the better understanding of the wills recorded 
in the Register. The ancient laws of Ireland were quite 
foreign to those of England in such cases, but after the 
Anglo-Norman conquest, the code which regulated the dis- 
posal of lands and goods in England was gradually imposed 
on this country by the conquerors. Among the subjects of 
moment dealt with by the Synod which sat at Cashel, under 
the presidency of the Papal Legate, in 1172, was that of the 
making of testaments, and the 6th constitution laid down 
that all the faithful, when in sickness, should, with confessor 
and neighbours standing by, with due solemnity, make each 
his testament. They should divide their moveable goods, 
provided they have wives and children (debts and servants* 
wages excluded), into three parts, leaving one part to the 
children, another to the lawful wife, and the third for the 
funeral. If, perchance, there were no lawful issue, the goods 
should be divided between testator and his wife; if the 
lawful wife were dead, then the division ought to be between 
himself and the children.^ 

In the Crede Mihi are certain ordinances and instruc-

tions for the Dublin clergy in reference to their religious 
duties, deportment, and relations with the laity, laid down 
at a Synod held in Dublin in 1217, under the presidency of 
Henri de Loundres, papal Legate, and this is the sole 
copy of them known to exist. At p. 126 of the edition 
recently published by Sir J. T. Gilbert, will be found such 
as were made " De Testamentis," and among other things 
it was enacted that no administration of a will should 
be granted unless an inventory were first exhibited ; no 
religious of any profession was to intermeddle in the execu- 
tion of wills unless by permission of the ordinary ; adminis- 
trations were to be committed only to such persons as were 
competent to render proper accounts; and the Church was to 
have its due out of the portions of deceased persons, debts 
and funeral expenses being first deducted. 

From the earliest times the ecclesiastical courts claimed 
jurisdiction in the matter of wills, but the books of the 
Common Law observe, that the foundation of this right 
which the Church possessed, was by special concession fi-om 
the secular power — namely, from successive kings. The 
ecclesiastical courts and the secular arm were frequently 
found in collision from the time of the Plantagenets. In the 
Red Book of the Exchequer in Ireland, now deposited in the 
Public Record Office, are recorded " Articuli cleri," bearing 
date the 19th year of Edward L, which eminently deserve 
the attention of students of ancient ecclesiastical law, but 
which appear to have hitherto escaped notice. The article 
bearing on testamentary jurisdiction, with the answer of the 
king and council, which fully upholds the authority of the 
Church courts, is as follows : — 

** Item cum Dominus Rex omnes causas testamentarum ad forum 
ecclesiasticum pertinere recognoscat et ecclesia Hybemicana in pos- 
sessione jurisdictionis earundem a tempore a quo non extat memoria, 
videlicet, quod creditores cujuscuuque defuncti executores ipsius 
testatoris in foro ecclesiastico conveniant et ab ipsis executoribus 
conveniantur ballivi seculares judices ecclesiasticos super hoc impe- 



xii Introduction. 

diunt et breve de prohibitione tarn ante latam sententiam quam post 
eis dirigunt qui si contravenerint attachiantur incarcerantur et amer- 
ciantur et nunc pendet causa in curia. 

'' Responsio = Assignetur causa pendens et fiet conqueranti jus- 
ticia. 

** Rex <= Sequitur alia responsio per regem. Omnia in testamento 
verbata et specialiter legata ad forum ecclesiasticum spectant et 
cetera de quibus non fit mentio spectant ad Regem secundum fores 
et leges Anglicanas." 

Henry de Bracton, in his De Legibtis et Consuetiulinu 
bus AngltcB (edited by the late Sir Travers Twiss, D.C.L.), 
lays down the law on the subject of testamentary disposi- 
tions and intestacies in terms which elucidate most of the 
points requiring explanation in the wills, &c., included in 
the present volume, in which instances of almost every case 
provided for, will be found to occur. De Bracton says that 
a man may dispose by will of his moveable stock and goods, 
and of such surplus as may exist after deducting the amount 
of debts due. Should a testator be bound to the king, he 
must be preferred before all others, and the sheriff may 
attach goods found to the value of the debt due to the Crown, 

If a freeman die intestate, the administration shall belong 
to the Church and his friends ; but, in the first instance, 
debts due to others, clear and acknowledged, ought to be 
deducted, among which are to be reckoned servants' wages, 
and stipends of assistants, provided they be certain in 
amount. Expenses of the funeral ought also to be deducted, 
and the wife should have her necessaries up to her quarentine 
(40 days within which dower ought to be assigned), unless 
dower be sooner assigned her. All these payments having 
been deducted, what remains will be the private estate of the 
deceased ; but if nothing remain over, or if, by chance, de- 
ceased had no goods at the time of his death, the heir would 
remain burdened. 

In cases of persons dying testate, when a portion remains 
over, it is to be divided into three parts, one of which must 



Introduction. xiii 

be left to the children of deceased (if any he have), a 
second to his wife, and over the remaining third the testator 
has full disposal. Should there be no children, then half 
was to be reserved as testator's portion, and the other half to 
be his wife's. If the wife predeceased him, leaving children, 
then half was to be at the disposal of testator, and the 
remaining half was to be the children's. If he died without 
wife or children, then all should be at his own disposal. 
Bracton ftirther lays down that, if a contest arise as to a 
will, the plaint ought to be determined in an ecclesiastical 
court, for the king's court does not introduce itself into a 
testamentary, any more than into a matrimonial cause. 

A testator is bound to remember his lord with the best 
article he has, and the church with the next. Though no one 
is bound to give anything to the church for burial, neverthe- 
less, where that laudable custom exists, the pope does not 
wish to break it. 

A woman, who is independent, may make a will, like any 
other, and dispose of her property and crops, which are part 
of her dowry, whether they have been separated from the 
soil or not; but if she be placed under the power of a 
husband, she has not the right of making a will, without 
his consent; nevertheless, as a mark of respect it is sometimes 
allowed her to make a will of the reasonable part she is 
likely to have, should she survive her husband, and chiefly 
of the things granted her for adornment, as with regard 
to robes and jewels. 

From the above, it will be seen that the residue, in every 
case, was at the free disposal of the testator. It was known 
as "portio defuncti," the legatory, or dead man's, portion, 
and, generally speaking, this share was bequeathed to pious 
uses, for the benefit of testator's soul. 

The common law of England so dealt with these matters 
as far back as Henry II.'s time, and the editor of the 
Guildhall Wills points out that the restriction on testators' 
powers of bequest continued in force in London long after 



xiv Introduction. 

its abolition in other places under acts of parliament. The 
act 2 Geo. I. enabled a citizen of London to dispose of 
all his personal property by will, so as to bar the claims of 
wife or children, and " thus," adds a commentator, " is the 
old common law now utterly abolished throughout all the 
kingdom of England, and a man may devise the whole of his 
chattels as freely as he formerly could his third part or 
moiety."* 

A testament disposing of personalty was usually couched 
in Latin, and a will^ vvhich dealt with a testator's real estate, 
was written in English ; frequently two dispositions were 
made, but in the present volume, it will be found that the 
terms " testament " and " last will " are used, more or less, 
indiscriminately. 

Among the deeds formerly belonging to the cathedral of 
Christ Church, now deposited in the Public Record Office, is 
one (336), which concerns the ancient custom of the city of 
Dublin in the matter of testaments, which devised lands and 
tenements within the city and its franchises. The mayor 
and bailiffs in the year 1483 testified, that time out of mind, 
such testaments, when certified out of the spiritual court, 
where they had been approved, were wont, within a year and 
a day from the date of testator's death, to be exhibited to 
them. Within the same period, three proclamations of them 
were usually made at the High Cross on three market days. 
Twelve citizens then made inquiry, and found a verdict as to 
the testator being rightfully seized, whereupon it was the 
custom to inroll and record such testaments among the city 
records. A dispute between the prior and convent of the 
Holy Trinity, and Patrick Burnell, who had married Anne 
Sutton, widow of Nicholas Sutton, one of the barons of the 
Exchequer, as to the title to some messuages in St. Werburgh's 

1 In the will of Sir Theophilus Biddulph, proved in the Prerogative Court in 
1687, the testator divides his goods into three equal portions, " according to the 
laudable custom of London " ; one for his wife, the <* orphanage^ or children's part," 
to his two elder children, and the remaining, or testator's part, also to his wife.

parish, &c., devised to her by her first husband, led to the 

formal document in question, inasmuch as the prior and 

convent required the city authorities to certify, on their 

behalf, the custom of the city, which they accordingly did, 

adding that no testament of Nicholas Sutton had been 

inroUed ; an exemplification of his will, however, appears 

among the Christ Church Deeds (No. 327). It was proved in 

1478, and was exemplified at the request of the proctor of St. 

Werburgh's, Dublin. 

In her Town Life in the Fifteenth Century y Mrs. J. R. 

Green has some interesting notes concerning the customs of 

certain English cities in similar matters. In Nottingham, 

wills devising land were publicly read in the Borough courts, 

and then inroUed by the mayor in a court of record. The 

muniments of Canterbury show that from this custom, as 

observed in that city, the mayors went on to claim the right 

of granting probate; the claim was, of course, perfectly 

illegal, but was strongly insisted on. In Lynn, about the 

year 1335, the burgesses obtained the right to have all wills 

that affected property in the town, proved in the Guild Hall, 

before the mayor's court. Mrs. Green points out that, in the 

earliest wills, no mention is made of probate before the 

ordinary. . In later registrations, it is recorded that wills had 

received episcopal probate, before being brought into the 

mayor's court : the cost of this was what people wished to 

avoid, and the following lines from the ** Complaint of the 

Ploughman,"* which internal evidence shows to belong to the 

latter part of the reign of Richard II., prove that the popular 

satire was even then directed at the heavy charges made by 

officials in such matters — 

** For who so woll prove a testament, 
That is not all worth tenne pound, 
He shall pay for the parchment 
The third of the money all round." 

As bearing on the point of expense, the Irish statute

xvi Introduction. 

28 Henry VIII. cap. 18 (1537) recites that in a parliament, 
held at Westminster, 3 1 Edward III., upon complaint of the 
people as to outrageous fines of money taken by ministers of 
bishops and other ordinaries of Holy Church for probates 
of testaments, the king charged the archbishop of Canterbury 
and other ordinaries to make amendment, and inquiry into 
such misdemeanours was ordered to be made. 

In the White Book of Dublin (Corporation Records) are 
particulars of a suit in 1372-3, brought by John Grauntecet, 
and Ismay, formerly wife of Robert Doding (as executors of 
the latter's willj, against Thomas Minot, archbishop of Dublin, 
for six marks, illegally exacted for proof of Doding's wilL 
The defendant pleaded letters patent, pardoning him all 
offences prior to January 4, 1372-3, and on this most original 
defence, he obtained a judgment. In the margin are the 
words — " Extortion of six markes taken by the Bishop of 
Dublin." 

Gilbert's Chartularies of St. Mary's Abbey contains a 
copy of the will of John Taillor, of Dublin, 1370, which 
affords some information as to the fees in this country. He 
bequeathed for the proving of his will, 20% and left 10* to the 
clerk of the court of Christianity, Dublin, for his trouble in 
transcribing the will, and for other things concerning the 
testament. In the present Register, 4^ for sealing, and 4* 
for writing his will, were left by John Kempe. The Christ 
Church Deeds throw some further light on these expenses, 
as the will of John Foyle, 1380 (No. 251), shows that he 
bequeathed 2" for proving it; William Foyll (No. 239) in 
1348 left half a mark for probate, and 40 shillings to the 
clerk of the court, and Robert North in 1346 (No. 633), 
2 shillings, for proving his testament. 

The Irish Archceological Miscellany^ vol. i., contains full 
copies of two wills of Dublin citizens from the Charter Book 
of the Corporation; that of John Hammond (1388) contains a 
bequest of 6" 8^ for his probate, and that of Richard Donogh 
(1440), lo* for the like. 



Introduction. xvii 

The will of John Alleyn, dean of St. Patrick's, made in 
1505, bequeaths a sum of 100 shillings to Walter, archbishop 
of Dublin, for proving and registering same, and this must 
surely be the only instance on record in which an intending 
testator made a special compact with the head of the consis- 
torial court, as the will further recites that the archbishop 
promisedy and even bound himself by a document in writing, 
to be content with this amount. 

The most important wills in the collection are those of 
the two archbishops, Tregury and Walton, and it is worthy 
of remark that as far back as 1234, special privileges with 
regard to their wills had been conferred on archbishop Luke 
and his successors in the see of Dublin, under a grant from 
the Crown, dated at Westminster, 27 March, 18 Henry HI., 
which is to be found inroUed in the "Antiquissime Literas 
Patentes," in the 26th year of Edward I. (1297-8). This 
document gave liberty to the archbishops to make testaments 
of all their goods, moveable and immoveable, as well of 
corn sown in the ground, as of other things, so that neither 
the king nor his constables, nor any other secular person 
might lay hands on such goods, or interfere with the execu- 
tors. 

In the Liber Niger of Archbishop Alan will be found a 
document entitled, " De Testamentis Archiepiscorum non 
impediendis," with the date 1248 at the top, which is a 
mandate from J. fitz Geoffrey, Justiciary of Ireland,* reciting 
shortly the tenor of the above, and directing his bailiffs, 
&c., to do nothing contrary to the king's grant, and not to 
hinder the executors of such archbishops in carrying out 
the provisions of their testaments. Possibly, there may 
have been some special circumstances which compelled 
archbishop Luke to obtain these privileges for himself and 
his successors.

period 1248*1266.

xviii Introduction. 

Michael Tregury, or de Tregury , is said to have belonged 
to the house of Tregury, Tregurra, or Tregurtha, in the 
parish of St. Wenn, or Wenna, which lies west of Bodmin 
in Cornwall. Tre or Trev would appear, in ancient times, to 
have signified only a family, and the word was, no doubt, 
connected with the Gaelic Ttr^ and with its analogous form 
in Welsh, being connected with the Latin trtbus. Many of 
the names with the prefix Tre in Cornwall represented single 
houses, with the names of the proprietors subjoined, so that 
Tregury would mean the house, or home, of the family 
named (rurra or Gurtha. The last male heir of this family 
died in. the reign of Henry V., leaving three daughters co- 
heiresses ; the property, which is now called Tregotha, was 
sold, and, through successive changes, passed into the hands 
of William Hals, who wrote a Parochial History of Cornwall^ 
and who resided there in the latter part of his life. It is now 
owned by the Rawlings family. A William Tregury was 
prebendary and vicar of Lusk in 1457, ^^d William Tre- 
gorrei (probably the same person), rector of the church of 
St. Mary the Virgin, Howth, appears from a Memorandum 
Roll, 10 Edward IV., to have been fined 40" in 1470, for 
contempt of court in calling, by abusive names, Christopher 
Russell, Henry Lacy of Dublin, and others, jurors, in a 
plea of debt between the said rector and one John 
Laralton. Whether this William Tregury were a brother or 
nephew of the archbishop, there are now no means of 
determining, but it is probable he was a near relative, who 
came over with his kinsman, and obtained preferment in the 
diocese. 

Michael Tregury was a Fellow of Exeter College, Oxford, 
and a D.D. of the University. In 1434 he served the office of 
Junior Proctor, and Anthony Wood in his FasH^ notices 
that he was principal of some of the halls that stood near 
his college. So remarkable was Tregury for learning and 
wisdom, that when King Henry V. founded a college at 
Caen in Normandy, that monarch invited him to assume the

management of it, and, while so engaged, he published 
several works, which are described in Pits as follows : — 

" Multa scripsisse perhibetur quae Gallis inter quos vixit vel Hibemis

Quaestiones ordinariae, .... Lib. i.

On the death of Richard Talbot in 1449, Tregury was selec- 
ted to succeed him in the see of Dublin. The congi Siltre^ 
which bears date at Drogheda, August 22 y 1449, and is extant 
among the records of Holy Trinity, was directed to Hill, dean 
of St. Patrick's, and William Denys, prior of Holy Trinity, 
and his consecration took place in the city of London. 
On 19th February, 1450, Richard, abbot of St. Thomas the 
Martyr, became one of his securities, on the restitution to 
him of the temporalities. In the interval between Talbot's 
death and Tregury's appointment, the episcopal crosier was 
pledged by John Streguthen, or Barber, to Richard White, 
a tailor, for five marks, and, on the matter being brought 
before his court afterwards, Tregury delivered a definitive 
sentence, decreeing that the prior and convent of Christ 
Church ought to release it, as its custody was one of their 
special privileges. This is on the authority of the Liber 
Niger y which contains a note by Archbishop Alan, that the 
crosier was mortgaged for a period of nearly eighty years, 
and (to his honour be it recorded) that he caused both it and 
the staff to be restored on the payment of 100 oz. of silver. 

Very few of the events in this prelate's life have been 

handed down to us, but it is evident the course of his 

archiepiscopate did not run smoothly, and his entry on its 

labours was marked by an incident that might well be taken 

as an augury of the stormy character of his life and work 

among the Irish people. Dr. Donnelly, the bishop of Canea, 

has, with extreme kindness, communicated a Bull of Pope 

b2 



Introduction. 

Nicholas the Fifth, transcribed by a correspondent in Rome, 
which discloses the fact that when crossing from England 
some time after he had been consecrated in London, Tregury 
lost his personal belongings, including gold, silver, plate 
and jewels, which were swallowed up in the sea. This 
document, which bears date 17th December, 1451, permitted 
him to hold certain benefices, &c., to the value of ;^ 200 per 
annum, tn commendaniy as an aid towards supporting his 
dignity, supplying anew the valuables destroyed, as above 
mentioned, and repairing the castles, &c., belonging to the 
see, which stood greatly in need of it. The archbishop had 
petitioned the Holy See for this grant, alleging that, through 
the negligence of Talbot and others, his predecessors, the 
turmoil of war and hostile incursions, the profits of the mensal 
had become so much reduced, as not to be worth more than 
;^30o a-year, while the castles, possessions, and lands for the 
space of twelve miles round were utterly desolated. 

The archbishop had one other experience of a startling 
character, for, in 1453, he was carried off from the bay of 
Dublin by pirates. They were pursued to Ardglass in Co. 
Down, where he was rescued from captivity, and a number 
of the pirates were killed. 

Tregury's adventures on land were scarcely less exciting, 
for, some nine years later, he, for the second time, found 
himself a captive — on this occasion in the hands of some of 
the wild raiders that infested the country between Dublin 
and South Wicklow. O'Byrne's country had never been 
thoroughly brought into subjection to the English Crown ; 
and the Bishop of Canea, in a paper on the Incumbents 
of Killadreenan and Archdeacons of Glendalough in the 
Fifteenth Century {Journal R,S,AJ.y 1893), opens up a very 
interesting subject, namely, that of a probable attempt made 
to revive the ancient diocese of Glendalough as a separate 
see during the latter half of the fifteenth century. He re- 
marks that the archbishops of Dublin, who also frequently 
filled the office of Lord Chancellor of Ireland, were certainly 



Introduction. xxi 

unwelcome in their civil capacity among the mountains, and 
this may have helped to render their ecclesiastical adminis- 
tration equally distasteful. 

The imprisonment and ill-treatment of archbishop 
Tregury by the Harolds showed so clearly, that an im- 
portant portion of the united dioceses might, at any time, 
have been left without supervision, that Dr. Donnelly 
thinks the Holy See may have been moved to meet such 
an emergency by the appointment of bishops who could 
directly administer the spiritualities of Glendalough. All 
that is known with regard to the daring outrage is to be 
found in the Liber Niger of Archbishop Alan, in which is 
copied a Bull of Pope Pius II., dated 23rd November, 1462, 
excommunicating Geoffrey Harold, Thomas, and Edmund 
Harold, his sons, Patrick O'Byrne, Thaddeus Shereff, 
Thomas Bechaighe, Robert Burnell, and certain other lay- 
men of Dublin, for the imprisonment of archbishop Michael. 
Canon Stokes, in his valuable calendar of the contents of the 
Liber Niger {Jaurnal R. S. A. I.^ 1893) states that there had 
been a quarrel between Tregury and the Harold faction 
connected with some property near the Three Rock Moun- 
tain, but the learned writer gives no authority for the state- 
ment. The name of Harold is still to be found in the district, 
and Harold's-grange is the name of a place close to the foot 
of the mountain. 

An additional fact in Tregursr's life has come to light in a 
Statute Roll 5 Edward IV. (No. 37).' In 1465 he was indicted 
in the court of Chief Place for having, in a journey from 
Ratoath, assaulted Stephen Fitz William, of Jobstown, and 
despoiled him of a sparthe (an axe or halberd), value 2*. 
The archbishop did not appear in that court, but declaring 
that he was the victim of a conspiracy, and alleging his in- 
nocence of the offence, he obtained an order of parliament 

' A copy oi the entry in the Statute Roll, entiUed <* Case of Michael Tregury, 
archbishop," will be found in a yolume of miscellaneous documents in Manh*s 
Library (classed ▼. 3, 1-24). 



Introduction. 

giving him liberty to clear himself of the charge, with twelve 
chaplains as compurgators, before the Earl of Desmond, 
lord deputy, &c. At foot of the entry is a memorandum 
that the archbishop in person, with twelve chaplains, 
namely, Thomas Waryng, John Stakbold, Alan, prior of 
Ardee, the prior of Holmpatrick, John AUeyn, John 
Murgane, Robert Waryng, William Tregorre,^ Henry Kyng, 
Andrew Meyler, Peter Motyng and Walter Maundevyll, 
solemnly cleared himself before the said deputy, the lords 
and commons. Parliament declared this sufficient for his 
purgation, notwithstanding his not having appeared in the 
court of Chief Place. The charge was a strange one to have 
been brought against a man of Tregury's rank and sacred 
office, but he seems to have made many enemies, and 
possibly a fray or quarrel between Fitz William and some 
of Tregfury's retainers may have been, by malice, strained 
into an accusation against the archbishop himself. 

An interesting picture of Tregury, while he lived among 
the Dublin people as their chief pastor, is afforded by the 
Register of the Dominican Abbey (Ware's MS.) which 
related that he was so affected, by the news of the capture 
of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453, that he proclaimed 
a solemn fast for three days, and he himself, clothed in 
sackcloth and ashes, preceded his clergy in a procession to 
Christ Church. 

From Sir T. Duffiis Hardy's Syllabus 0/^^ Rymer*s Fosdera^" 
it appears that in 1458, Tregury had leave to absent himself 
from Ireland for three years, but whether he remained away 
for so long a period, it is now impossible to decide. 

Michael Tregury died on 21st December, 1471, at the 
manor house, or country seat, of the archbishops of Dublin 
at Tallaght, which he had repaired; and Mr. Hancock, in his 
Antiquities of Tallaghty observes that he was the last of the 
Dublin prelates who resided there, while the ancient castle

Introduction. xxiii 

was in all its pristine grandeur. The place is now in the 
possession of the Dominican order, and the sole remains of 
the structure consist of the tower, Tregury's obit is recorded 
in the Mortilogium of Christ Church, in the words : " oft 
Michael Tregorre, Archiepiscopus Dubline anno Domini 
m''cccc''lxx°i." 

His remains were conveyed to St. Patrick's cathedral, 
and laid near the altar of St. Stephen, whose chapel formed 
portion of that dedicated to St. 
Mary. A large tombstone, 7 feet 
3 inches by nearly 4 feet, erected to 
his memory, is now fixed in the 
south wall of the baptistery (see 
frontispiece), and the archbishop's 
effigy represents him as fully vested, 
holding in his left hand the archi- 
episcopal cross-staff, with the infula' 
attached; the right hand, with the 
third and fourth fingers bent in- 
wards, is raised as in the act of benediction, while over it 
appears the emblem of St. Michael, the archangel, his 
patron saint ; a shield, with Tregury's arms (argent, a 
chevron sable between three Cornish choughs proper), im- 
paling those of the see of Dublin, is on the left hand of 
the figure. 

At the head of the stone appears the inscription

famous monuments of ancient Dublin. From it the sides 
of the original altar-tomb appear to have been adorned 
with trefoil-headed arches, rising from short pillars (see 
accompanying plate). 




In connexion with the use of the cross-staff shown in the 
monument, a writer in Archmologia (xlvii., p. 375), referring 
to a plate representing an archbishop, remarks that it is a 
common error to suppose his cross to be the equivalent of the 
crook or crosier of an ordinary bishop, and to have been . 
carried by him in ecclesiastical functions. An archbishop 
did not carry the cross,' but it was borne before him by a 
clerk appointed for that office; he himself used the crosier 
like other bishops. In monumental efHgies, and seals, &c., 
we sometimes, as in the present instance, see an archbishop 
represented with the cross in his hand, but this is a con- 
ventional way of indicating his dignity. 

In the year 1730, this memorial to Tregury was found 
under some rubbish in St. Stephen's chapel, and the flat in- 
scribed stone was, by order of the dean (Jonathan Swift) and 
the chapter, fixed in the wall on the left as one entered the 
church from the western gate, between the gate and the

place where the consistorial court was held. The following 
inscription was placed over it : — " vetus hoc monumentum h 
ruderibus capellae Divi Stephani nuper instauratae erutum 
Decanus et capitulum htic transferri curaverunt, A.D. 1730." 
On the restoration of the cathedral through the munificence 
of the late Sir Benjamin Lee Guinness, the stone and above 
inscription were removed to their present position in the 
baptistery. 

Tregury's successor as archbishop of Dublin, was John 
Walton or Mounstern, whose will appears at p. 167. In 
1452, he had been appointed i8th abbot of Osney, a great 
monastery which was founded in 11 29 for Augustinian 
canons, by Robert D'Oyley (or Olleys) on an island in the 
river near Oxford. First a priory, it was soon after raised 
to the rank of an abbey, but no intelligible traces of its 
buildings at present remain. The island of Middeny (Medley) 
which is mentioned in Walton's will, was the first land 
granted to it, and the abbey had possessions in Walton, 
which was near at hand, and from which the Walton family 
may have derived their name. The Annals of Osney have 
been edited in the Rolls series by Mr. R. H. Luard, and his 
exhaustive preface gives the fiiUest account of this great 
monastic foundation, so frequently mentioned in Walton's 
will, with which he seemed to keep up so intimate a 
connexion, and among whose abbots he desired that his 
remains should rest, if he died in England. 

Among the MSS. in Balliol College are Walton's 
"supplicat" for the degree of D.D. dated 1451, and a 
translation by him into English verse of Boethius, De 
Consolatione Philosophic. 

In June, 1473, soon after his appointment to the see, the 
archbishop was admitted a freeman of the city of Dublin. 
Prior to his tenure of his sacred office, there had been law 
suits between the archbishops and Holmpatrick priory, 
with reference to an annuity of two marks claimed by 
them out of Ballygossan alias Cabragh hill, but Walton 



XXVI Introduction. 

put an end to litigation by releasing all his rights by deed 
dated ist May, 1484, and some documents bearing on these 
matters will be found in Alan's Liber Niger. He appointed 
a distribution of the annuity among the convent — 5" to the 
prior and 3" 4^ to each of the canons, on condition that 
they and their successors should celebrate for him and his 
successors yearly, on the morrow of All Souls, by singing 
a Placebo and Dirige. 

In May or June of the same year, Walton resigned the 
see of Dublin, reserving for his maintenance during the 
remainder of his life, the manor of Swords, which was 
specially confirmed to him by act of Parliament in the 
next year. On his resignation, Gerald, Earl of Kildare, 
lord deputy, took forcible possession of 24 townlands 
belonging to the See in Ballymore and Castle Kevin, 
which were only restored about the year 15 16, more than 
thirty years after. Ware is our authority for the statement 
that the Register of Swords (a MS. which was in his 
collection) mentions John Walton in terms of gfreat respect, 
for his hospitality and cheerful innocent disposition. He is 
said to have become blind, and the last glimpse obtained 
of the aged ex-prelate is an affecting one, for, on the 
occasion of his having preached a sermon before the lord 
deputy in the cathedral of St. Patrick on that saint's festival 
in the year 1489, he was afterwards led to the neighbouring 
palace of St. Sepulchre, where he dined. Walton's will, as 
found in the Register, is undated, but it was most probably 
made before his resignation of the archbishopric in 1484, 
for he describes himself in it as archbishop of Dublin and 
primate ; there being no note of proof appended, the date of 
his death is not known. 

Archbishop Walton's will (p. 167) is chiefly remarkable 
for the long list of silver plate, household linen, candelabra, 
vestments, altar necessaries, and even garments for retainers, 
which he had brought over with him from Osney, and which 
he wished restored to the abbey there. It is, however, still 



Introduction. xxvii 

more notable for being the only testament in the volume 
which mentions the title of a book ; in addition to a porthose 
and missal, he expresses a wish that his copy of the Pupilla 
oculij which was a manual for the clergy, should also be 
returned to that house. It seems strange that the abbot 
of such a monastery, in crossing the channel to assume 
archiepiscopal functions, should have been permitted to take 
with him so many valuables, and that as archbishop of 
Dublin, he did not feel it beneath his dignity to take the 
life use of them. It is matter of regret that the inventory at 
foot of the will is blank, as the list of books in the chapel 
would have been of extreme interest. As a return for so 
extensive a loan, Walton bequeathed to the abbey two books 
of medicine, without specifying their titles, some spoons, 
and a quantity of household articles. 

It was evidently a custom of St. Patrick's cathedral 
that the vicar of the archbishop, as prebendary of Cullen, 
was held entitled to his surplice and amice, as there is 
a bequest of those vestments to that functionary in accor- 
dance therewith. The archbishop directed that his funeral 
services should be conducted in both St. Patrick's and 
Christ Church cathedrals. Since Walton describes himself 
as archbishop and primate, it is probable the will was 
executed in anticipation of his resignation, and on the eve 
of a journey to Osney : an additional reason for assigning 
this date to it is the fact that tenants of the see lands 
owed the large sum of 200 marks, and this sum would have 
been quite out of proportion to the rents of the manor of 
Swords alone, which he reserved for his maintenance during 
life. His connexion with his native land must have been 
closely kept up, as all those indebted to him and his 
creditors were English, save two Florentine merchants, 
to whom he owed 250 marks. Walton's accounts with the 
various officials of Osney appear to have been in an 
unsatisfactory condition, as the seneschal, collector of rents, 
sacrist, and kitchener owed him large sums. 



xxviii Introduction. 

The Pupilla oculi — the only book mentioned by name in 
the Register (p. 1 68) — was a tract consisting of ten parts, of 
which I to 8 deal with the sacraments, 9 with the consecration 
of churches, tithes, sepulture, festivals, fasts, &c., and 10 with 
the creed and commandments. It is, as explained in the 
preface, an adaptation, with large alterations, of the tract 
Oculus Sacerdotis (attributed to William Pagula). The 
British Museum has six copies of the MS., two of which 
belonged to Cranmer. In the printed editions the work is 
assigned to John de Burgo (or Borough), chancellor of the 
University of Cambridge in 1384, and it is dated 1385. 
The Oculus long retained great popularity, and the portion 
known as the Puptllay which, in short, was a manual for 
the guidance of the priesthood, was five times printed at 
Paris and Strasburg, between 15 10 and 15 18. The copy in 
the Library of T. C. D. (where it is classed CC. f. 58) was 
printed in London in 15 10, at the expense of William 
Bretton, merchant, and was to be had '^apud bibliopolas 
in cimiterio Sancti Pauli sub intersigno sanctissimae ac in- 
dividual Trinitatis." 

The remaining documents included in the Register 
number eighty-three, and of these, fifty-six are wills (with 
inventories) of farmers, some of whom, residents on the 
coast, were also boat-owners and fishermen ; twelve of 
merchant citizens of Dublin, and four of persons who may 
be described as gentlefolk ; there are five administrations 
(intestate), and six of the documents are purely ecclesiastical. 
In addition, the volume contains a register of visitations 
made in the year 1468, together with some excommunica- 
tions. The farming-folk would appear to have resided 
chiefly in the district of Fingal, in North Dublin, for out of 
fifty, whose places of abode are mentioned, thirty-eight 
belonged to Balrothery, Balscaddan, Ballymadun, Garris- 
town, Mulhuddart, Gracedieu, Lusk, Swords, Finglas, Howth, 
Malahide, Santry, and Glasnevin ; while only nine lived in 
the southern portion of the county, namely, in Newcastle- 



Introduction. 

Lyons, Esker, Clondalkin, Tallaght, Castleknock, and 
Crumlin, some of the others having homes in Leixlip and 
Killadoon. 

Of the Dublin citizens, one is described as also of 
Coventry, and another as trading with England, while re- 
siding principally in this country. London, Oxford, several 
places in Oxfordshire, Bubbenhall in Warwickshire, St. 
Michael's Mount, Cornwall, Bristol, Manchester, Bolton, 
and Conway, are the principal places in England and Wales 
mentioned in the wills and inventories. Some of these 
Dublin testators had extensive property in the county as 
well as in the city, in the counties of Kilkenny and Water- 
ford, and in England, and a few carried on farming in 
addition to their business in the city. They traded in cloth, 
yarn, skins of goats, sheep and lambs, leather, iron, salt, 
alum, ox and pork flesh, tan, pitch, and resin, while some 
were gold- and silver-smiths. As usual at the period, these 
merchants acted in the capacity of money-lenders, and 
numerous articles of value are named as being pledged with 
them, notably a jewel (or piece of plate) belonging to St. 
Patrick's church, which was in the hands of Hugh Galliane 

(p. 85). 

In several instances, at the commencement of the inven- 
tory, the wife is described as joint owner with the husband, 
and one such case is that of Richard Porter, Rose Tirrell his 
wife, and their children. Another is that of Peter Higley, 
Millane his wife, and their children, and this testator's 
anxiety to do justice to the help afforded him by his partner 
for life is not a little remarkable, for he bequeaths to her the 
third part of all common goods " acquired between us." 

Many of the testaments in the volume are those of married 
women, and John Kyng's wife (p. 157) is specially stated to 
have made hers by leave of her husband; she bequeathed him 
all the goods which were his and his former wife's, except the 
garments and ornaments given her by him ; in this case the 
testatrix was a widow at the time of her marriage with Kyng, 



XXX Introduction. 

and she directs her body to be buried with that of her first 
husband. We learn, from Sir John Gilbert's Corporation 
Records^ that, in 1347, complaints were made to the king 
that, contrary to the usage of the city, married women 
bequeathed their husbands' goods without their license, and 
that excommunications were issued by prelates and eccle- 
siastics against citizens who prevented their wives from 
making such gifts. 

Generally speaking, the wills are in precisely the same 
form, all being made when the testators were at the point of 
death, and proved immediately ; one only, that of Joan 
Steven (p. 160), was not proved for five years from the date 
of the will, and the wording of the probate shows that such 
a lapse of time was unusual. 

Some of those of more important people, however, vary 
much, and a few of them are remarkable for their legal 
phraseology in devises and limitations of lands. The will 
of Richard Boys (p. 9) dealt with property in Coventry and 
the neighbourhood ; while John Gogh, of Dublin (p. 39), 
settled in legal form his possessions in the county and city 
of Waterford and in the county Kilkenny, which must have 
been considerable, as an agent for the collection of the rents 
was necessary ; he bequeathed a messuage to a chaplain in 
Waterford, on condition of his collecting and remitting them 
to the executors. Nicholas Barret's will (p. 70) is notable 
for the terms of a family agreement recorded with it, and the 
inventory and accompanying list of debts due to him, &c., 
afford a great deal of information as to the belongings of a 
wealthy Dublin merchant of the period. The inventory (p. 78) 
of Dame Margaret Nugent, widow of Sir Thomas Newbery, 
who had been mayor of Dublin on several occasions, enu- 
merates a quantity of silver plate, jewellery, and furniture, 
among other articles a brass pot for holy water, the only one 
mentioned in the Register, which the Dame must have kept 
in her house for daily use. The old lady's list of debts 
seems, at first sight, rather large, especially in the number 



Introduction. 

and amounts of the sums due to chaplains, but as the 
testatrix directed all the articles scheduled in her inventory 
to be sold for payment of same, it is to be hoped her 
creditors were all satisfied. Hugh Galliane's list of plate 
(p. 85) is worthy of attention, as are also the terms of his 
will as to his Dublin property, and the bequest of lands, 
&c., to the guild of St. Mary of Mulhuddart. William Neill, 
of Clondalkin (p. 97), was the owner of a tan-house, and 
while he seems to have had large possessions, his generosity 
to the poor and the Church was commensurate with them. 
The wills of William Carryke fp. 106) and Peter Higley 
(p. 130) deal with landed property, the former speaking of 
his chief residence as a castle, while the limitations in his 
will are almost as numerous as those in a modem settlement. 

Bequests to servants, both male and female, are frequent, 
and the wages due to individual domestics are generally set 
out ; there are some legacies left by masters to their appren- 
tices, and as a further instance of kindly feeling, a guest, 
in his will, remembered the host in whose house in Dublin 
he had resided, and even the servants of his host. 

Bequests to daughters and near female relatives, with a 
view to their preferment in marriage, are also to be found, 
and three or four instances occur in which what was known 
as the principal was, in the first instance, to be delivered 
out of moveable goods to the eldest son, according to the 
custom of the country. (Note, p. 205.) 

Bequests of an unusual nature occur in the wills of 
Nicholas Delaber (p. 59) and Joan White (p. 48) ; the former 
bequeathed his largest pot and skillet to be held for common 
use among his neighbours in Balrothery, as well rich as poor, 
same to be in his wife's keeping as long as she resided 
there, and, on her departure, to be held by John Pippart, 
his heirs and assigns for ever. On a similar trust Joan 
White willed a three-legged pan and a trough, with two 
trundles, to the good people of her native town of Leixlip, 
but with a proviso that the legacy was bestowed for 



xxxii Introduction. 

the health of her own and her ancestors* souls. In such 
gifts the respective testators only anticipated an episcopal 
personage, for, under the will of Hugh Brady, bishop of 
Meath, dated 1583, the poor inhabitants of Dunboyne had 
the use of one of his best pans in common amongst them, 
" to serve their turns," and the portrieve of the town was to 
settle any controversy as to borrowing or keeping the pan 
too long. 

The poor were remembered in a still more practical way 
by the testators whose wills are being considered, one leaving 
a sum of money to be expended in the purchase of woollen 
and linen cloth to make gowns and shirts for them ; and 
another (p. 98), in addition to money for the poor, ordered that 
those maintained in St. John's house, outside the New Gate, 
Dublin, should be provided with a special repast, to which 
others had been wont to treat them. In two instances, those 
of John Wylde and Joan Steven, directions were given that 
debts due to their estates by poor persons, and those unable 
to pay, should be remitted. 

As a matter of course, the churches, chaplains, parish 
priests, the mendicant friars (who seemed especial favourites 
and objects of bounty on the part of testators), monasteries, 
clerks, and even choir-boys, were remembered in these wills, 
and in addition to houses, lands, and money, specific articles, 
or money to purchase them, were frequently bequeathed. 
Thus we find acres of wheat, rye, and oats, money for susten- 
ance of altar-lights, chalices, and money for gilding or 
repairing them, altar-towels, missals, and service-books 
among the bequests ; money was also willed to the images 
of the Virgin and saints, and in payment of tithes neglected 
or forgotten. A cow was left to the church of St. Nicholas, 
Kinsaley, a gown was bequeathed to a chaplain, a robe to 
an image of the Virgin, and silver cups were also willed. 
The works of the churches themselves, whether of the nave, 
chancel, or walls, and the construction and repair of belfries, 
were frequent objects of the bounty of testators. 



Introduction. xxxiii 

As is still the case in Ireland, the funeral obsequies of 
the deceased were accompanied by the exercise of much 
hospitality to the clergy and friends attending, and doles 
were always bestowed on the poor ; so it is not surprising 
to find in most of the testaments, in addition to money, that 
wheat and malt, bread, ale, meat, cows, sheep, geese, capons, 
and even fish, spices (or groceries), and wine, were directed 
to be supplied : wax, too, was left in large quantities, of 
course for altar-lights. Masses, and priests to celebrate, 
were nearly always provided, but, among the many, only one 
testator specified the number that he wished to be said for 
him ; this was John Chever, of Dublin, who left a sum of 
;^i6 : 13 : 4 for one thousand masses. 

The guilds, or fraternities, are frequently mentioned, 
among them those of the Holy Trinity, Dublin, St. Mary's 
of Mulhuddart, St. Mary's of Balrothery, and that of Holly- 
wood. These guilds were bodies of lay men and women, 
formed in different parishes, and among distinct communi- 
ties, for religious purposes, the members being bound to 
pray for the king and queen, their own relations and friends, 
and the members of the guild during life, and for their souls 
after death. The crypts of churches were anciently used for 
their services, and, as a rule, a special altar, dedicated to 
the patron saint of the guild, was consecrated in the parish 
church. Each fraternity had its own proctors, or wardens, 
distinct from those of the parish church, and, as years went on, 
they acquired separate endowments, money, lands, and houses 
being given and bequeathed them. That of Hollywood was 
left 2 acres of rye by John Kempe ; and John Gogh, of 
Dublin, bequeathed a missal to the master and wardens of 
the guild that met in the chapel of the Holy Trinity, in 
Christ Church. Nicholas Delaber left 2 nobles to the fraternity 
(under the patronage of St. Mary) which met in St. Peter's, 
Balrothery, and Richard Whytakrys the sum of y 4* to 
the same. 

Chantry priests are often mentioned in the Register, 

c 



xxxiv Introduction. 

and it may be well to note here that a chantry is to be 
distinguished from a chantry chapel. Strictly speaking, a 
chantry was a service endowed with the object of providing 
a priest to celebrate continually for the soul of the founder, 
&c., but it was by no means necessary that there should be a 
special chapel, as an altar was all that was required for the 
chantry and its priest. 

The testaments of members of the farming class appear 
to be those of substantial and respectable people, as the 
inventories of stock, crops, and household necessaries dis- 
close. From the amount of rent stated to be due to land- 
lords, and the number of acres sown, an approximate 
calculation of the size of the farms held near Dublin might 
be made, but for want of information as to grazing lands, it 
would be impossible to form an accurate one. Taking the 
cases of 33 farms, the average number of acres under tillage 
was 18, and 28 had wheat sown, 14 barley, 13 oats, and 
3 hastiuell; wheat and barley were sown together in 12 
instances, wheat and oats in 9, while in only 5 cases were 
the three crops in the fields at the same time. 

The amounts due for rents varied considerably, but, 
taking the same farms on an average, slightly over £2 
seem to have been owing to the landlord. In one of the 
schedules of debts, 5^ is returned as due for the rent of 
half an acre at Skiddoo, parish of Swords, and William 
Neill, of Clondalkin, owed 4*^, 8^, and 1 2^ for 3 acres, respec- 
tively. Oxen, sheep, lambs, hogs, pigs, cart and farm horses 
are enumerated as stock, while carts, waggons, wheels, 
ploughs, coulters, and yokes supply the implements of 
husbandry. The only farm servant whose particular avoca- 
tion is named, is a shepherd. Turf is but once mentioned, 
the wife of John Hassard of Balscaddan being possessed 
of 3* worth. In the preceding century, 6^ per acre was an 
average rent for arable land, and about Dublin the acre was 
equal to nearly 2^ statute acres ; the smaller tenants then 
generally held about 12 to 18 acres of land. 



Introduction. xxxr 

The Register supplies little information as to house rent ; 
one testator owed i" 8*^ and another 6" 8^ for houses, both in 
St. Michan's parish, and a sum of io» 3*^ was due for rent of a 
chamber in Holy Trinity parish. William Neill, of Clon- 
dalkin, owed 2" 3*^ for rent of his house, which must have 
been in the village or close by, as he there exercised the 
trade of a tanner. 

Among the professions, the only one named is that of 
doctor (whether of divinity, law, or medicine is not stated), 
while there is frequent mention of the notary public. 
Smiths, butchers, bakers, millers, tailors, fishermen and 
tanners are found amongst the callings enumerated. 

The furniture usual in houses at the period, will be found 
specified in the inventories, ranging from the silken sparver 
and tapestry coverlet of the bedchamber and the oaken 
cupboard of the dining-room, to the frying-pan and turning- 
spit in the kitchen. The best list of household goods is 
contained in the inventory of John Kyng's wife (p. 156). 
Vessels of lead, brass, and pewter, chests, coffers, napery, 
candelabra, with numerous other effects, are enumerated in 
these schedules. The articles of plate are very varied in 
character, consisting of silver bowls, maser cups, goblets, 
nuts, silver cups, silver ewers, salt-cellars and spoons, some 
households being especially rich in possessions of this class. 
The inventories of archbishops Tregury and Walton, and 
those of Dame Katherine Nugent (p. 78) and Hugh Galliano 
(p. 85) contain a number of articles of plate. The materials 
used in hangings, curtains, coverlets, &c., include tapestry, 
arras, silk, say (a woollen material), Holland cloth, bord 
Alexander (a kind of striped silk], tartarine, buckram, and 
English cloth. 

The most costly article of apparel mentioned is the 
scarlet parliament robe, with furred hood, belongfing to 
Tregury, which was in the keeping of Stephen Buttiler, a 
skinner, or furrier, in the city, but whether he held it for 
repair, or that the archbishop thought this robe, with its 



XXXVl 



Introduction. 



expensive furs, would be safer in the custody of a professional 
furrier than in one of his own residences, is matter of conjec- 
ture. Gowns, furred gowns, and russet gowns are met with. 
The Latin words jupa^ toga and tunica have been translated 
gown, while the two last terms occasionally stand for a coat. 
Peplum and "huke" were essentially women's garments, 
but it would be difficult to say wherein lay the distinction 
to be drawn between the jupa, toga and tunica, as they 
would seem to have been used indiflferently by those 
employed to draw up the inventories and testaments. The 
tunica may have been more in the nature of a waistcoat, 
tightfitting, and worn nearer the body than the toga, which, 
like the jupa, was more of an outer garment. In one instance, 
a coat is stated to be of Irish cloth. There are also shirts, 
mantles, and riding-habits with hoods, a jerkin (a kind of coat 
without sleeves), and stockings. Some military accoutre- 
ments claim notice, as a few testators left swords, helmets, 
hauberks and doublets of defence. Silver-studded girdles 
are of frequent occurrence, and in articles of jewellery, 
beads of jet and amber, brooches, corals, pearls, gold bars, 
and gold clasp with enamel may be cited ; rings, too, were 
bequeathed, one testatrix leaving her wedding-ring to her 
daughter. 

Among the ecclesiastical vestments, specially mentioned, 
are the alb, amice, chasuble, surplice, cope, rochet; while 
church necessaries include altar cloths and towels, chalices, 
patens, candlesticks, organs, altar lights, corporas cloths and 
cases, and a robe for an image. Among service books, the 
porthose, grayle, missal, antiphonar, and book of Lessons 
are named. 

A variety of articles were pledged, as security for money 
advances, such as silver cups and girdles, pots, rings, spoons, 
beads, brooches, a sword, and a hauberk; even an acre of 
wheat was so treated. 

In the Index, under Measures^ will be found a list of 
the various weights and measures referred to in the volume, 



Introduction. xxxvii 

for exact descriptions of some of which the reader is referred 
to the Glossary. 

Of documents other than wills and administrations, 
there are six, three of them incomplete. The first (p. 36) 
is a commission, dated j""* November, 1473, from archbishop 
Walton to William Huch, vicar of Cloncurry, to hold a 
synod in the deanery of Leap, diocese of Kildare, and to 
visit the clergy and people. 

The next (p. 72), which is without date and unfinished, is a 
remarkable document, in the nature of an appeal to the 
Holy See, made before an authorised delegate.^ The appel- 
lants in this case were the abbot and brethren of the 
monastery of St. Thomas the Martyr, near Dublin, who, 
after a recital as to their foundation, endowments, and 
the services ever rendered by them to the English monarchs 
and their deputies in this country, proceed to state the fears 
they entertain of injury threatened to their institution by 
Edmund, bishop of Meath, when the document comes 
abruptly to an end. 

John Purcell, the abbot named, did not hold that ofifice 
during the episcopate of Edmund Ouldhall, who died in 
1459, sixteen years before Purcell's election; in 1468, Purcell 
was only sixth in the list of canons of St. Thomas who 
attended the archbishop's visitation (p. 178). This causes 
suspicion as to the genuine nature of the fragment, and one 
solution of the difificulty is that during John Purcell's 
abbacy, the monastery was preparing a similar appeal, 
which the scribe may have copied from a prior one issued 
when Ouldhall was bishop, and that by mistake he inserted 
that prelate's name. 

The abbey of St. Thomas had many passages of arms 
with regard to the churches appropriate to it in the diocese 
of Meath, in which it had several. 

^ There were no appeals to the Pope oul of England before King Stephen's 
time, when they were introduced by Henry de Blois, bishop of Winchester, papal 
legate, and they were abolished in the reign of King Henry VHI. 



xxxviii Introduction. 

St. Thomas's figures also in the next document to be 
noticed (p. 99). This is a sentence in the business of a pre- 
sentation to the church of St. Columba, Confey, depending 
between William White and the abbey. It was pronounced 
in the chancel of the church of the Holy Trinity on 12th 
August, 1474, by William Stevenot (or Stewnot), prior of 
All Saints, Dublin, apostolic delegate, on an appeal from a 
definitive sentence of John AUeyn, dean of St. Patrick's, 
when guardian of the spiritualities of the see of Dublin 
during vacancy. The sentence is full of the technicalities in 
which the canon law involved all its proceedings, and some 
endeavour is made to explain them in the Notes (p. 221). 

The suit had already dragged along for over three years, 
as the vacancy in the see was that caused by the death of 
archbishop Tregury in 147 1, and we are ignorant of its 
final result, as this sentence merely settles the point that 
jurisdiction to proceed in the principal matter had devolved. 

Adam de Hereford had granted the church of Confey 
to the abbey of St. Thomas, but the deed of grant, which 
appears in the Register of the abbey, edited by Sir J. T. 
Gilbert, is undated. The principal witness was Simon 
Rochfort, bishop of Meath, 1 194-1224, and a confirmation 
of the grant, which Archdall dates A.D. 1201, was made by 
William [Piro], bishop of Glendalough, 1192-1214. 

The fourth document (p. 164) is a provocation or appeal to 
the Holy See by Patrick Fitz-Leones, a well-known citizen, 
who had been mayor of Dublin, against John Walton, 
the archbishop, and its wording is very similar to that of 
St. Thomas's abbey against the bishop of Meath. His 
appeal was read by Fitz-Leones himself in the nave of the 
cathedral of the Holy Trinity on 24th February, 1479, and 
the copy in the Register is accompanied by a notarial 
certificate of the fact. 

At the end of the Register are two fragments of sentences 
by apostolic delegates, the text of which is in many places 
so corrupt and confusing, that it was deemed best not to 



Introduction. xxxix 

make translations of them, which could only have been 
unsatisfactory. The printing of the text as found in the 
original, with a short account here of the nature of the 
documents, will meet the requirements of the case. 

The first (p. 185) recites the proceedings had in a 
matter depending between one Sir Robert, and master 
John Wight, who was pronounced contumacious. A sentence 
of the archbishop of Dublin was annulled, and Sir Robert 
declared to have rightly appealed from it. A sentence of 
augmentation, which severed certain portions of the tithes 
of Damastown, Powerstown, Macetown, and Kilmartin (in 
the parish of Mulhuddart) from the fruits of the prebendary, 
and annexed them to the ancient portion of the vicar, was 
confirmed. Should master John Wight and his adherents 
molest Sir Robert in the collection of such parcels of tithes, 
they were to be placed under the ban of the greater 
excommunication, and denounced with bell, book, and 
candle, and on their continued obduracy, were to have the 
punishment increased, and to be shunned by all the faithful. 

The remaining fragptnent (p. 188) contains a proof of 
the ancient power of the Church, and its determination 
in exacting the unquestioning obedience of its members 
in matters of discipline. John Bellewe and Jonet Fitz- 
William, who happened to be related to one another in the 
third degree of affinity, had contracted matrimony, and 
lived as man and wife. On the fact of their being within 
the prohibited degrees coming to the knowledge of the 
ecclesiastical authorities, action must have been taken and 
a suit instituted. An apostolic mandate was received (and 
here the portion of the proceedings preserved in the 
Register commences), and in obedience to it, the parties 
were summoned before the archbishop [John Walton, 1472- 
1484], as delegate of the apostolic See, who, on their 
humble entreaty, absolved them from the sentence of 
excommunication which their offence had brought on them, 
and pronounced sentence of separation or divorce. 



xl Introduction. 

The parties were not left long in this position, for the 
same document, which pronounced them two, granted them 
a dispensation to re-marry, and legalised their offspring. 
Such cases were probably of frequent occurrence ; and among 
royal personages these relationships, within prohibited 
degrees, were constantly put forward as pleas for divorce, 
when the yoke of matrimony pressed unduly, or was found 
inconvenient by either party. 

Similar cases of dispensation to re-marry will be found 
in Hardiman's edition of O'Flaherty's Wies^ Cannaughi. 
Walter Blake and Juliana Lynch, who had been married 
while related in the fourth degree, had such a grant in 1472; 
and Nicholas Blake and Cicily Lynch, related in the third 
degree, were permitted to re-marry in 1556. 

In addition to these documents will be found, at p. 172, 
official records of visitations of seven cathedral and monastic 
establishments in Dublin and its neighbourhood. On 25th 
April, 1468, archbishop Tregury visited the cathedral of the 
Holy Trinity, on the 26th, St. Patrick's cathedral, and on the 
28th, the abbey of St. Thomas the Martyr. On the 27th, 
All Hallows' priory and the nunnery of St. Mary del Hogges, 
close to it, were visited by master Robert Waren, official 
principal of the diocese, who was found engaged in a similar 
mission on the 4th May following at Holmpatrick priory, 
and on the 6th at the nunnery of Grace Dieu. 

The records of the visitations of St. Patrick's, Grace 
Dieu, and the Hogges are incomplete, and, in the two first 
instances, the lack of further information is unfortunate, as 
on account of the strained relations existing at the time 
between the Dean and Chapter of St. Patrick's and their 
Metropolitan, as to his right of visitation, the narrative of all 
that occurred on the occasion would have been important. 
We are left to imagination as to any cause of complaint the 
good sisters of Grace Dieu could have had against their 
archbishop. 

The Dean of St. Patrick's reported that he had not dared 



Introduction, xli 

to visit certain of the prebends, situated in the Irish parts 
and in the marches, on account of the unsettled state of the 
country caused by the wars. As far back as 1451, arch- 
bishop Tregury had obtained from Pope Nicholas the Fifth 
permission to visit, by any suitable person or persons whom 
he should depute, such churches and monasteries of his city, 
diocese, and province as he could not personally visit 
without danger to himself. The reasons alleged for this 
delegation of duty were the desolation wrought in the 
lands, &c., of his church of Dublin by hostile incursions 
and the near neighbourhood of his enemies. In the visita- 
tion of St. Thomas's Abbey, the same causes were assigned 
for the reduction in the wealth and resources of that once 
powerful institution. 

The name of a prior of Holmpatrick, not mentioned in 
Archdall's Monasitcotiy is preserved in the notice of the 
visitation of that house. Richard Brystow, late prior, had 
parted with a chalice, which was held by some of the farmers 
at Kilnevv, portion of the possessions of the priory. In many 
pages of the Register are preserved the names of parochial 
clergy hitherto unknown. 

The only remaining portion of the Register calling for 
notice (p. 179) contains a list of twenty- four sentences of ex- 
communication, incurred for the offence known to the ecclesi- 
astical courts as contumacy; these were pronounced between 
the 4th April and 30th May, 1478. Excommunications in 
the Church courts were probably, like outlawry in the civil 
ones, the last step in the course of futile proceedings to 
enforce attention to their processes. Anyone familiar with 
consistorial court-books will be aware that similar forms 
and sentences are to be found in the proceedings recorded 
in them down to a comparatively recent period ; pages of 
these court books are filled with the names of persons brought 
before the church tribunals for oflfences against the moral law, 
church discipline, and for disobedience of their mandates. 

In the present instance, in only three cases out of the 

d 



xlii Introduction. 

twenty-four, is the cause of contumacy specified; in one, the 
curates of Rathmichael and Killiney were suspended for not 
certifying a mandate citatory directed to them ; and in the 
others, certain parties were decreed contumacious for not 
appearing. One of the latter introduces a formidable, and, 
no doubt, frequently unwelcome official of the court, in the 
person of Roger Don, an apparitor, whose duty it was to sum- 
mon parties to appear^ and to execute its orders and decrees. 
In the Register of All Hallows, Dublin, edited by Dean 
Butler, there is a statement that, in archbishop Tregury's 
Register of Wills, are to be found sentences of excommuni- 
cation against contumacious withholders of tithes. Number- 
less complaints as to abstraction of tithes were continually 
dealt with by these courts, but it is certain the only cases in 
the Register wherein the offence is named, were not in tithe 
matters, and the cases brought at the instance of the holy- 
water clerk of Malahide, and the proctors of Lusk, were not 
connected with such. 

In conclusion, on behalf of the Royal Society of Anti- 
quaries of Ireland, I have to acknowledge the liberality of the 
Board of Trinity College in granting permission for the 
publication of this Register under the auspices of the 
Society. At the same time, as a graduate of the University 
of Dublin, I may be allowed to express my high sense of the 
privilege which has been afforded me of editing one of the 
ancient manuscripts stored in our noble Library. 

Dr. La Touche, Deputy-Keeper of the Public Records, 
has laid me under obligation by the great interest he 
evinced in the progress of the work, and for many valuable 
suggestions ; his permission to use a transcript of portion 
of the Register, which had been made for official purposes, 
greatly facilitated it. My colleagues in the department were 
most helpful, and to Mr. James Mills, m.r.i.a., in particular, 
my best thanks are due; his kind assistance in points of 
difficulty lightened my labours, while his stores of know- 



Introduction. xliii 

ledge in Irish historical subjects were always at my disposal, 
and the reading of the proofs alone was a severe test of 
friendship. 

The Society has also to acknowledge its indebtedness to 
the Dean of St. Patrick's for allowing Tregury's monument 
in the Baptistery to be photographed for this work. From 
the position of the stone and the want of light in that portion 
of the cathedral, the task was no easy one, but its difficulties 
were most satisfactorily overcome by Mr. Milford Lewis, to 
whom this portion of the work was entrusted. 

Sir Arthur Vicars, Ulster, very courteously allowed a 
representation of Tregury'.s altar-tomb to be copied from a 
volume of ancient monuments of Dublin in his official 
custody. Mr. Thos. J. Westropp, M.R.I.A., has enriched the 
present volume with a drawing (frontispiece) from Mr. 
Lewis's photograph of Tregury's monument, together with a 
sketch of the archbishop's arms (p. xxiii), and a study of the 
ornaments on the expanded surface of his mitre (which 
appears below). These exhibit all Mr. Westropp's recog- 
nized skill and accuracy, and for his trouble the Society and 
the editor are much indebted to him. 

I must not omit to record my sense of the patience and 
pains bestowed by Mr. George Weldrick of the University 
Press and his staff on a troublesome text.

Cornwall with a suitable oblation, which in fulfilment of a vow I am 
bound to perform by myself or proxy, and that he shall aid with some 
largesses towards their works, the churches lying round [the places] 
where my friends dwell, so that they may learn of my change and be

their contumacy, the judge or the advocate of his opponents [to take] 
nothing contrary to the rescript, he sought that the judge should pro-

judge considered them, when summoned and not appearing, contu- 
macious, and on their contumacy decreed that his jurisdiction could 
take cognizance, and consequently the said party appealing presented 
a document upon the impediment meeting him within the first period 
of time allowed, which might prevent his prosecuting his appeal ; where- 
upon that document being read, the judge decreed that the lapse oT 
the time allowed did not hinder him, and that the judge himself

the rejection of the disallowance oflfered before the judge below,

this particular the interlocutory to the said judge below, and

ensuing, in the same place to the aforesaid parties, to give and

NOTES.

Couples. — Throughout the Register, couples of wheat, oats, &c., are 
mentioned as sown in the fields, stored in bams and haggards, or as 
being in the hands of various persons. In Ellen Stiward's inventory, 
each couple is valued at 4'. o**. and in other instances in the volume, 
the values vary from this sum to 5'. o**., 6V 8**., 8*. 4*^., and even a little 
higher still ; it would seem as if the couple were equivalent to the 
produce of an acre sown, precisely the same sums being stated for the 
one as for the other. As illustrating the subject, the late Mr. J. F. 
Ferguson left a memorandum endorsed " Mode of collecting tithes in 
Ireland; couples of corn," now in the Record Office among his 
collectanea, which throws some light on the sense in which the word 
was used at a later period. Mr. Ferguson quotes a replication of 
Langan to Tipper in 1603, wherein it is asserted '* that the ordinary 
rate and custom for receipt of tithes in Ireland is not to receive every 
tenth sheaf, but every tenth acre or couples of acres, of what grain so- 
ever they are served with, and that the ordinary appellation thereof is 
by the name of couples of com, and that every couple of com by 
general estimation contains 12 pecks." In an answer of Lock to 
Murphy in 1601, there were stated to have been put in defendant's 
haggard 8 couples of corn, not worth 90 pecks, viz. after the rate of 
20 pecks the couple. In a haggard at Oxmantown, were 6 couples of 
good choice com, accounting every couple worth and to yield 20 
pecks, every peck lox. od, a piece. A replication of Thomas Gerald 
to the answer of Arland Usher, states that 3 couples of corn mentioned 
in the pleadings were worth each 14 pecks, or more (and were always 
so worth yearly), and ** although defendant had not found so much 
corn in said couples corn as same was set for, in all likelihood this 
was caused by his negligence or wilfulness." The rejoinder pleaded 
that said 3 couples were not worth 14 pecks each, and if plaintiff 
were hurt, it was through his own negligence, as he did not return 
from England till all corns were severed from the ground. Defendant 
denied that he received 9 pecks of wheat, bear and barley, and 15 
pecks of oats out of same 3 couples. 



192 Notes. 

Derrick Hubert possessed 46 acres of com, containing 23 couples 
com {t*e,) 22^'. wheat and 23J'. oats on Galmoreston, Co. Kildare. 
John Hach in 1570 {Dublin Wt/i), bequeathed a couple of com 
" this present harvest to be chosen upon 20 couples," and a couple of 
fallow ** that is to be sown, and to choose the same upon 20 couples." 
His son Richard was to have *'a couple of y* choice 6f all my fallow 
without division."

Balscaddan. — A parish in the barony of Balrothery East, Co. Dublin, 
two miles west from Balbriggan. The church of Balscaddan was 
appropriated by Archbishop Luke (1228-1255) to the cathedral of the 
Holy Trinity, for support of four canons. Balscaddan itself, the 
ancient name of which was Villa Radulphi, was one of the manors 
of the Priory. Henry de Marleburgh, the chronicler, was vicar in 
142 1.

Oarristown. — A parish in the barony of Balrothery East, Co. Dublin, 
which is called Balliogarii in the Repertorium Viride. A decree as to 
burials in the chapel of Palmerstown (which were claimed by the 
prior and canons of Llanthony, as belonging to the church of Garris- 
town, and by the canons of St. Patrick's, as belonging to the Prebend 
of Clonmethan), calls the church Ecclesia de Villa Oggarii ; a copy of 
this decree, taken from Alan's Register, will be found at p. 1 1 1 of 
the Register of All Hallows, edited by Dean Butler. 

Browneusyn. — This name appears in the Calendar to the Patent 
Rolls of Chancery as Brounensyn and Brounuesyn, while in the 
Calendar to the Chancery Inquisitions, it takes the form of Brownun- 
singe. A Robert Brounensyn is mentioned as of Norragh, Co. Kil- 
dare, 3 Hen. IV. (1401-2), and in 1475-6, the king granted to the 
Bishop of Meath, Rowland Fitz Eustace, chancellor, Christopher 
Nugent, Baron ofDelvin, John Brounuesyn and others, liberty to 
establish a fraternity or guild of the art of glovemaking in the city 
of Dublin, to be called the fraternity or guild of the Blessed Virgin 
Mary. In 1523-4, one John Brownunsinge was seized in fee of 35 
acres in Esker and Balliowne, and he devised all his lands to the 
church of Esker in perpetual alms ; his only son Robert died without 
an heir, and on his death, the proctors of the church took the profits 
thereof. {Chancery Inquisition, James I. Co. Dublin.) 



Notes. 193 

In Sir John Gilbert's Dublin Corporation Records^ a Richard Bron- 
newsyn, shoemaker, is found to have been admitted to the franchise 
of the city in 1471, and a Robert Bronnewsyn in 1472.

House of St. Wolstan. — This priory — de scala coeli — which was 
founded about 1205 by Adam de Hereford, for canons of the congre- 
gation of St. Victor, lay near the river Liffey, close to Celbridge, and 
the majestic gateway, with some few portions of the monastic buildings, 
may still be viewed in Captain Cane's demesne at St. Wolstan's. This 
saint, son of Athelston and Wulfgeva, was bishop of Worcester, 1062 ; 
he died in 1095, aged about 87, and was canonized in 1203. His life 
was written by William of Malmesbury and by Florence of Wor- 
cester, and an account of him appears in Worcester Cathedral^ by 
Dr. Thomas.

Principal. — Occurring, as this word does, in connexion with the 
provision made for the funeral expenses of deceased, the amount 
must be taken as the customary money composition in lieu of the 
ancient mortuarium. This mortuary was originally the best horse 
which followed the corpse at the funeral, and became the property of 
the parish priest as his perquisite. Sometimes the best article of 
apparel was taken, and at p. 64 of the Register, Alice Whyte leaves 
for principal, one cow. In certain regulations laid down as to 
mortuaries in the sth year of King Charles I. (Table of Tithes drawn 
by the Primate, confirmed by the king ; Morrin's CaL Pat. Rot,), it is 
enacted that, when the clear goods of a deceased amount to so much, 
the widow and every of the orphans may have a cow, or her worth in 
other goods, generally appraised at 15^.; if there be a cow left, or her 
worth, the minister is to have a cow or i$s.

Ballymadim. — (Balmadun), Macdun*s townland^ a parish in the 
barony of Balrothery West and Co. Dublin. The church was dedicated 
to All Saints, and was conferred on the nunnery of Grace Dieu by 
Henry de Loundres, archbishop of Dublin, in 1212. The Reper^ 
torium Viride says the original patron was de la Hide, but in 1532, 
the Lord of Gormanstown. The church was probably erected before 
1275, but has been in ruins since 1630.

Conrt of Dublin. — ^The consistorial court of Dublin held its sittings 
in St. Patrick's as early as 1277, and archbishop Alan mentions it as 
being fixed there in 1530. A stone in the wall near the N.-W. comer 
of the cathedral determines the ancient site of the court and date of 
its removal : it bears the inscription — ** In hac area olim habebatur 
curia metropolitica Dublin, et de hinc translata fuit ad aedificium 
positum juxta parietem meridionalem navis hujus ecclesiae, 1724." 

James Selyman was appointed by the Town Council in 1457 a 
constable of St. Thomas-street, and in 1465, of St. Bride's-street 
(Gilbert's Corporation Records), His obit is in the Mortilogium of 
Christchurch, ** 6 Kal. Maii, ob. Jacobus Selyman frater nostre congre- 
gationis." Such parties received letters oi fratemily^ which admitted 
them to a participation in the prayers, the alms, and suffrages of the 
monks. Dr. Todd remarks that these obituary notices were not so 
much to record the deaths of the individuals, as to mark the days of 
the month on which their names were annually remembered. 

The name of Selyman appears in connexion with land in Cashel 
in 13 16 {Ch. Ch. Deed, No. 547).

Herchant of Coventry. — At a meeting of the Dublin Town Council 
in 1460, at which it was shown that merchants of London, Coventry, 
Chester, and other parts of England, abiding in Dublin, confederated 
together, preventing freemen of the city from putting their merchan- 
dise on board ships freighted by these English merchants, it was 
resolved, in consequence of their action, that none of them should be 
admitted to the franchise of the city of Dublin ; any of such merchants 
already admitted to the franchise, to be deprived and to incur a fine. 
At a later meeting in the same year, it appearing that the English 
merchants had obtained a royal charter for a guild or fraternity in 
Dublin, and had threatened the Dublin merchants who traded with 
England with being beaten or slain unless they belonged to it, the 
Council passed a resolution that any freeman of the city sworn into 
this fraternity should lose his franchise and be fined, with other clauses 
directed against this attack on the liberties of the city. 

In 1479 the guild of English merchants trading in Ireland, or 
fraternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary was established in the building 
called the chapel del Marie du Grace on the ** brygge end," Dublin, 
and in 1481 a statute incorporating it was passed; the first master 
and wardens were James Welles, Thomas Whelbred, and Richard 
Pylkynton. A transcript of the statute of incorporation will be found 
in Gilbert's History 0/ Dublin ^ vol. i. (Appendix).

Church of the Friars Preachers, Dublin.— The friary of S. Saviour 
in Ostmantown, near the old bridge, was founded between 1202 and 
12 18, by William Mareschal, Earl of Pembroke, for the Cistercian 
order. The Dominican community took it over in 1224, and the 
present Four Courts are built on the site of the monastery. A Christ 
Church Deed (No. 29), dated in 1219, contains the approval of Henry, 
archbishop of Dublin, of the erection of St. Saviour's chapel, near 
Dublin bridge, provision being made for the chaplain. 

Chapel of St. Hary, near the Bridge of Dublin.— Letters Patent 
were granted on 24th October, 1 348, to John de Graunsete to found 
and construct on the stone bridge of Dublin, a chapel in honour of 
the Virgin Mary, with an endowment of loo' yearly, for the support 
of two chaplains, to celebrate divine service there daily, for King 
Edward, Queen Philippa, the welfare of the founder, the mayor, &c., 
and the souls of all the faithful departed. Dr. Burke, in his great 
work on the Dominicans, erroneously ascribes the foundation of the 
bridge to that order. 

Page 10. 

Sir John Boys, chaplain. — Though the testator, Richard Boys, was 
a merchant of Coventry, it is probable he was a member of the Dublin 
and Meath family of that name, and that Sir John Boys was a relative ; 
he was prebendary of Mulhuddart, and, at the same time, Nicholas 
Boys was prebendary of Castleknock. The family had property at 
Rodanstown and Bryanstown, Co. Meath. 

The Chnrch of St. Hichael, Coventry, is, with one exception, the 
largest parish church in England. This splendid Gothic edifice, styled 
by Wren a masterpiece of architecture, the tower of which stands 
1 36 feet high, surmounted by an octagonal tapering spire 130 feet high, 
was erected 1 373-1 395 by two brothers, Adam and William de Bota, 
of Coventry, both mayors of that town. 

Bnbnell.— (Bubbenhall or Bobenhall) a parish in the Kenilworth 
division of the Hundred of Knightlow, Warwickshire, 5 miles S.-E. of 
Coventry, on the river Avon. 

Page 12. 

Chnrch of St. Popan, of Santry.— The present church, dedicated 
to S. Pappan or Popan, the abbot, was erected in 1709, on the site of 
the edifice built in the 13th century, and dedicated to the same saint, 
which arose on the ruins of a small chapel, built by St. Pappan

196 NoteB. 

in the 6th century. (Walsh's Fingal and its Churches,) Rev. J. F. 
Shearman, in his Loca Pairiciana, says that at a very early period 
a church existed near Santry, called Disert Tale, a designation now 
forgotten, but it was probably named from being a retreat of Mac 
Tail, whose son, or grandson, Papan was abbot of the church of Santry. 
The accounts of his monastery are very scant, and the only memento 
of him as its probable founder, is preserved in the name of a townland 
called Poppin Tree in the neighbourhood. In the Martyrology of 
Tallaght, St. Papan and his brother, Folloman, sons of Nathfriach, 
are commemorated on 31st July, and the patron of the former used to 
be celebrated at the same date at Poppin Tree. The name Santry is 
derived from sen-treibh^ tribus antiqua, old tribe or house. The late 
rector. Rev. B. W. Adams, published, in 1883, a History of Santry 
and Cloghran^ which contains a large amount of information on 
those parishes. 

St. John's House.— The priory of St. John the Baptist, which stood 
outside what was known as the new gate, in St. Thomas-street, was 
founded by Ailred the palmer, as a hospital for sick poor, about the 
year 1 1 88, and he bestowed the church of Palmerstown on it. Archdall, 
in his Monasticon, says that, in 1542, the Infirmary of the House 
contained 50 beds for the sick; the vestments for the canons of 
Thomas Court and for the Franciscan friary in Francis-street were 
wrought there, and for their labour, the brethren had a tenth of the 
wool or flax which they spun, assigned to them, when the work was 
finished. The members of the different orders for whom they worked 
visited the Hospital on St. John's Day, when they presented offerings 
before the image of the saint, which stood in the great hall. On the 
saint's eve, the mayor and commons were wont to visit the place, and 
on such occasions, a bonfire was lighted in front. Several money 
bequests to this foundation will be found in the Register, and one 
provided for the inmates being furnished with a special repast (p. 98). 
The Roman Catholic Church of St. Augustine and St. John stands on 
the site of the institution. 

Page 13. 

Master Kichard Fiche was perpetual vicar of Castleknock, and 
appears in the Register as official principal of the consistorial court of 
Dublin from 147 1 to 1477. His obit is entered in Christ Church 
Book at 8 Kal. July (25 July) 1482, and he gave £^. 3. 4. to the 
prior and convent of the Holy Trinity, ten marks to the works of 
the church, erected a pulpit, and conferred many other benefits on 
that community.

Oreen Wax. — Estreats of fines, &c., delivered to the sheriffs out of 
the Revenue side of the Exchequer, under the seal of that court, 
made in green wax, were so called. They were levied twice every 
year by the Clerk of the Estreats and Summonister against goods 
only, and the term, "green wax process" was generally applied to the 
processes of the Summonister, Pipe, and the Treasury Remembrancer. 
John Kempe*s debt of 3*. 4"*. then, was a fine under this process. 

Church of St. Canice, Hollywood.— Hollywood is a parish in the 
Barony of Balrothery West, Co. Dublin, and from the Crede Mihi 
we learn that the church, ** De sancto bosco," was said to belong to 
the prior of Llanthony, near Gloucester. The chancel is now a 
complete ruin ; the foundations which remain are 30 feet long by 20 
wide, but the walls of the nave are fairly perfect. The west gable, 
which is very lofty, is surmounted by a perfect triple-arched bell-turret. 
Dr. Walsh considers the ruins, which stand in a sudden deep hollow 
on the south-west slope of some high land, as imposing. The hills 
around were once covered with forests, which from the name, holy 
wood, may have been sacred to Druidical worship. {Ftngal and its 
Churches,)

Chapel of Orallagh. — ^This was a chapel of Holljrwood, dedicated 
to St. Mac Cullin ; the original building, which was probably erected 
before 1 306, was small and without any claim to architectural beauty, 
and the chapel has been a ruin since before 1630. Orallagh is in the 
barony of Balrothery West, twelve miles north from Dublin. 

The Church of Westpalstown. — This is a parish in the barony of 
Balrothery West, twelve miles north from Dublin, the church being 
one of those bestowed on the nunnery of Grace Dieu, and the Reper- 
torium Viride has a note that it was built on land which formerly 
belonged to the chief of Westpayle, that formed part of the whole 
land of Occadesis in Fingal. This was a later name of the Celtic 
sept of Cianachta, and after the establishment of surnames, the 
territorial chief took that of O'Cathasaigh, now Casey. In the Crede 
MM, the church is called the church of the land of Roger Waspaill. 
The church was ruinous by 1630, and Dr. Walsh judges from the 
remains that the building must originally have been extensive. An 
inrolment in a Memorandum Roll of Henry VI. shows that there were 
three Westpaltowns in Co. Dublin ; one Villa Waspail alias Gaboyn, 
near Hollywood, another near Blundelstown, and a third near Lucan. 



igS Notes. 

Friars of Brogheda. — The four orders in that town were the 
Dominicans, founded in 1224. by Luke Nettervill, archbishop of 
Armagh; the Franciscans, who came about 1240; the Hermits of 
St. Augustine, for whom a House was founded in the reign of King 
Edward I. ; and the Carmelites, introduced by the townsfolk during 
the same reign. 

Page 16. 

Friars, Dublin. — The four orders of Mendicant Friars here, were 
the Dominicans, or Black Friars, who took possession in 1224 of a 
Cistercian house, which stood on the site of the Four Courts; the 
Fratres Minores — Franciscans, or Grey Friars, whose friary stood in 
what is now Francis-street, on ground given them in 1235 by Ralph 
le Porter; the Carmelites, or White Friars, for whom Sir Robert 
Bagot, knight, chief justice of the King's Bench, erected a monastery 
about the year 1278, on a piece of ground purchased by him from the 
abbey of Baltinglass, Co. Wicklow. Aungier-street and Whitefriar- 
street now occupy the site of the house and premises. The fourth 
order was that of the Augustinian Hermits, whose friary was 
founded about 1259 by a member of the Talbot family, on a 
site since occupied by Cecilia-street and the north part of Crow- 
street. It was an important foundation, and was the general college 
for all the friars of the order in Ireland, but no records of it are now 
known to exist, and of its priors, the names of only three have been 
handed down. At the suppression of the monasteries, the last prior 
was found seized of a church and belfry, hall, dormitory, cemetery, 
and garden, besides other premises. 

Trentals. — The word is derived from the old French, Trentel or 
Trantel. A trental was a set of thirty masses, three being celebrated 
on each of the ten great festivals for the repose of the soul of a 
deceased person. More frequently, perhaps, the masses were said 
on thirty different days, and were, in fact, the same as the Month's 
Minds, the services lasting a month or thirty days. The pQem of 
'* St. Gregory's Trental " is to be found in Political , Religious, and 
Love PoemSy edited by Furnivall. At p. 23 of the Register is a 
bequest for a celebration of the Trental of St. George, but it is possible 
the word **Georgii " may have been written in mistake for "Gregorii." 
Readers of Chaucer will remember his Limitour in the Somnour^s Tale: 

** And specially abouen everything. 
Excited he the people in his preching. 
To Trentals . . . 

'Trentals,' seyde he, **deliveren fro penaunce, 
Hir freendes soules, as wel olde as yonge.' "

Spioes. — Under this term were included not only groceries but 
drugs; in the 13th century, the trade in such was carried on by spicers 
or pepperers.

Church of St. Colnmba of Swords.— The fullest and most inte- 
resting account of this will be found in a Lecture on Swords and its 
Antiquities, by the late Bishop Reeves. 

John Alleyn, Dean of St. Patrick's.— His obit is entered in the 
Obits of Christ Church at 2nd January, 1505 — '* Ob. Johannes Aleyn 
juris canon ici bachalarius atque quondam ecclesie cathedralis sancti 
Patricii Dublin decanus qui legavit nobis doctorem juris canonici 
vocatum Abbatem alias Panormitanum cum repertorio super eundem 
una cum magno repertorio Petri Brixiensis episcopi.'' 

The Dean's will is entered in Alan's Register, and has been 
printed in Mason's History of St, Patrick* s Cathedral, and in it he 
directs his books — among them this Repertorium — to be sold for the 
benefit of the hospital founded by him in St. Kevin's-street, Dublin. 
Dr. Todd is quite at a loss to account for the statement in the Book 
of Obits that the volume was bequeathed to Christ Church, and 
devotes some portion of his Introduction to the matter, conjecturing 
that the word '* legavit" may be a mistake, and that between the date 
of his will and his decease, the Dean may have given the books to 
the convent. 

The commentary on the Decretals of Nicholas Tudeschus 
(commonly called Panormitanus) was printed in 1492, and five editions 
of the Repertorium of Petrus de Monte (called Brixiensis from his 
bishopric) were printed before the close of the 15th century.

John Fiti Sobert of Bathmore. — John Fitz Robert appears in Christ 
Church Deeds (No. 341 and 342) in 1484 as a juror, in inquisitions 
taken as to lands and tenants of the archbishop's manor of Ballymore- 
Eustace. Rathmore is a parish in the barony of Naas, Co. Kildare.

Flat pieces. — The word piece was in common use for a drinking- 
cup ; standing pieces were covered cups, like large goblets, while 
shallow basins or dishes, in which joints of meat were served, were 
known as flat pieces. ^'Thenne the boteler shall bryng forth basyns, 
ewers and cuppis, pecys," &c. Babees" Book (for to serve a lord). 



200 Notes. 

Stephen Buttiler. — Stephen Botyller, of Dublin, skinner (or 
currier), was executor of the will of Philip Russell, of the parish of 
St. Nicholas within, made in 1442, which is enrolled in a Plea Roll 
of 28 Henry VI. (No. 434). In 1470, William Bottiler was admitted 
to the freedom of the city as son of Stephen Bottiler, and in 1480 
Stephen Bottiler was appointed constable for St. Nicholas-street 
(Gilbert's Corporation Records). 

Constable of TaJlaght. — This was one of the archbishop's chief 
manors, and the castle is believed to have been erected by Archbishop 
de Bykenor. 

Grayle (or Grail) was a service book, containing the responses or 
gradalia, so called because sung in gradibus or by course. It contained 
all that was to be sung by the choir at High Mass — ^tracts, sequences, 
hallelujahs, creed, offertory, trisagium, and the rest. At the Synod of 
Exeter, 1287, it was ordered that certain books should be provided in 
every parish, at the charge of the parishioners, among them the 
gradale. Lynwood says of it : — **Ponitur pro libro integro in quo con- 
tineri debent officium aspersionis benedictae, missarum inchoationes 
sive officia, Kyrie cum versibus, gloria in excelsis, gradalia, hallelujah 
et tractus sequential symbolum cantandum in missa, ofifertorium, 
sanctus, agnus, communio, &c., quae ad chorum spectant in missae 
solennis decantatione." 

Towels for the altar. — Two were usually laid on the altar, under 
the corporal, and a third was used for wiping the hands during 
service. 

Pair of organs. — This term is generally supposed to refer to the 
double bellows, by which continuous sound was produced, but it may 
have been used from the fact that the organ was constructed with a 
double row of pipes. One authority says that in old times one pipe 
was called an organ, the collection of them organs. They were 
frequently imported from Flanders, and in the Louth Church Accounts, 
Arch' X-91 {circ. 1500), the price paid for setting up a pair in the 
church was/'i3. 6. 8. Organ building flourished to a great extent 
in Kilkenny in the fifteenth century. 

Chasubles. — The chasuble is the eucharistic vestment which sur- 
mounts all the others, leaving the arms free, and as a rule it was made 
of velvet, silk, or cloth of gold, though in some old church inventories, 
damask, satin, tissue, and tartaron are found to have suppKed materials 
for its manufacture. This vestment was generally decorated in the 



Notes. 20 1 

most costly fashion, with embroidery or orphrey work. In Mr. R. 
A. S. Macalistefs Ecclesiastical Veslments (Camden Library) will be 
found a very full account of the chasuble. 

Albs. — The alb was a vestment with sleeves reaching from head 
to foot, which was usually made of linen, though silk and cloth of gold 
were not uncommon in mediaeval times. Its proper colour was white, 
but occasionally coloured albs were worn, and all were ornamented 
with patches of embroidery ; the vestment was secured by a girdle. 

Ooidon. — *' This is inferior to the standard, being the first colour 
any commander of horse can let fly in the field. It was generally of 
damask fringed, and usually 3 feet in breadth near the staff, lessening 
by degrees towards the bottom, where it was by a slit divided into two 
peaks." (Grose's Military Antiquities, 11. 258.) From the Prom- 
tor ium Parvulorum^ we learn that the gy tone (conscissorium — so 
called from being slit at the extremity) was the name of a sort of 
streamer. Guidon is supposed to be a corruption of guide-homme, and 
it is written guyd home in Harleian MS. 2258. Every guidon had in 
the chief the cross of St. George, with the crest, word, and device of 
the owner. In Henry F., act iv., s. 2, the Constable says to the 
Dauphin, '' I stay but for my guidon ; to the field ! I will the banner 
from a trumpet take, and use it for my haste.** 



Page 25. 

Carshet coflfer of spruce. — ^The scrinium or serene was a coffer 
in which books and treasures were usually preserved in the churches. 
The meaning of the qualifying word carshet is not quite apparent, but 
it probably stands for casket, as a small coffer might be so described. 
The more usual term was a forcer or forcet, and if the word carshet 
stand for forcet, the coffer may have been one of the banded ones, 
manufactured in Flanders. The word spruce (which also appears in 
old wills as pruce, prewce, prosse, prews, sprusse, and pruse) would 
indicate a chest of foreign construction, imported by way of the 
Baltic from Prussia. The editor of the Bury wills states that Cyprus 
chests were used for keeping linen clothes in. Gremio {Taming of 
the Shrew, act 11., s. 1) kept his arras in cypress chests. 

Tallaght, Finglas, and Swords were three of the chief manors 
attached to the See of Dublin, and at Tallaght and Swords were 
castles with extensive premises. 



202 Notes. 

Proclamation at the High Cross. — The High Cross was situated at 
the junction of Skinner's-row and High-street, and it was customary, 
from an early period, to read from its steps, public proclamations, 
Papal Bulls, sentences of excommunication, and other documents of 
importance. Here were also performed public penances ; and peni- 
tents, clothed in white sheets, sat on the highest steps of the cross on 
market-days, with papers, announcing their offences, pinned to them. 

In 1483, John Weste, mayor, and the bailiffs of the city of Dublin, 
being required by the prior and convent of the Holy Trinity to 
certify how lands might be acquired, by testament, in Dublin city, 
showed (among other things) that on such testaments, under seal of 
the spiritual court, being duly certified to them, proclamation should 
be made on three market-days at the High Cross of Dublin, within 
a year and day after testator's death {Chris/ Church Deeds, No. 336). 

Page 26. 

Altar of St. Stephen. — See Introduction. 

Salt-cellars. — The word salsarium is as frequently applicable to 
the saucer as the salt-cellar. The salt-cellars in use were very large 
and elaborate, and this conversion of secular things to sacred uses 
was not unconmion, and has continued down to the present day. In 
Christ Church Deed (No. 290) Robert Passavaunt bequeaths a silver 
cup to his mother for life, and afterwards to the high altar of St. John's 
church, for a chalice. 

Visit St. Michael the Archangers Mount. — This place is situate a 
little south of Marazion in Mount's Bay, Cornwall. St. Michael is 
said to have appeared to a hermit on the summit of the rock, and 
plenary remission of sins was wont to be granted to pilgrims thither, 
bringing their offerings to be laid on the altar of a Benedictine priory, 
said to have been founded by Edward the Confessor. Spenser, in his 
Shepherd's Calendar^ alludes to the veneration paid to this place — 

" In evill houre thou hentest in bond. 

Thus holy hylles to blame. 
For sacred unto saints they stond, 

And of them han theyr name. 
St. Michel's Mount who does not know. 

That wardes the Westerne coste ? " 

Furnivairs Fi/ly Earliest English Wills furnishes a bequest 
similar to Tregury's ; William Newland of London left 20' for a man 
to ride or go on his behalf to St. Michael's Mount. In Testamenta 
Karleolensia, edited by Chancellor Ferguson, one John del Blamyre 



Notes. 203 

in 1 361 left directions that a sum of money should be provided for 
a visit on his behalf to the shrine of St. James of Compostella, 
which, during his lifetime, he had vowed to visit ; and William de 
Wyllerdby, rector of Croglyn, left 4* for a man to visit the shrine of 
St. John of Beverley. 

Philip Bermyngham was chief justice of the King's Bench ; and the 
Dublin Corporation Records show that, in 1485, he was granted part of 
Sewteres (Shoemakers') lane. This was a passage extending from a 
point nearly opposite St. Werburgh's church to St. Nicholas-street. 
In the fifteenth century the name was changed to Hind-street, in 
reference to its position at the rere of Skinner's-row, and the lane was 
built over in 1580. In the Christ Church Deeds^ Bermyngham's name 
frequently occurs as an arbitrator and witness. 

Page 30. 

Pontana. — The name Drogheda, {droicheat - bridge ; atha - ford) 
literally Bridgeford, was frequently so Latinized, and the town was 
known as urbs pontana. 

Page 31. 

My tole. — Occasionally in the Register, English words are to be 
found among the Latin, and this may stand for ** my tool," the price 
indicating a fairly large and important implement, which the testator 
thus emphasized. I'he word may possibly have been intended for the 
tdl or adze which, with certain other tools in early times, formed part 
of the effects of every large household in the country districts, as such 
were necessary for cutting wood, repairing the house, injured vehicles, 
&c. Richard White also possessed some augurs. The initial letter 
in the original might be read " c," and in that case, cole, coul, or 
colle would indicate a hogshead or large barrel. This was a large 
open tub with two ears to be carried between two persons on a coul 
staff; a cowl in Essex was the name of any tub. 

Wey. — A wey or weigh (waga) was 5 quarters ; a wey of cheese or 
wool was 256 lbs. ; barley or malt 6 quarters or 48 bushels. 336 
pounds of butter went to the wey. 

Page 35. 

The Clmrch of St. David of Kilsallaghan (r^t/rr^ of the osier wood) 
had vicar perpetual on the presentation of the canons of St. Thomas 
the martyr, who had a grant of it in 11 97 ; a monastery had been 
founded here at an early period. This parish is in the barony of 
Castleknock, co. Dublin, eight miles north of the city.

Synod in the Deanery of Leap. — From the terms of the commission, 
this would appear to have been more in the nature of a visitation. 
According to the Taxation of 1 306, the churches in the Deanery de 
Saltu, or the Salmon Leap, co. Kildare, were Donaghmore, Leixlip, 
Taghadoe, priory of St. Wolstan, Straffan, Stacumny, priory of St. 
Catherine, Kildrought or Celbridge, Killadoon, and Donaghcumper. 
In Nqy and Salkeld, it is laid down that a commissary at his court of 
visitation cannot cite lay parishioners, unless it be the churchwardens. 

Cathedratic was a sum of two shillings paid to the bishop by 
the inferior clergy, ** in argumentum subjectionis et ob honorem 
cathedrae." 

Synodals were the tribute or payment in money to the bishop or 
archdeacon by the inferior clergy at the Easter visitation. It was 
called synodale or synodaticum, " quia in synodo frequentius debatur," 
and termed synodtes in the statute 34 Henry VIII. c. 16. The term 
synodal is sometimes used for the synod itself. 

Procnrationes, (proxies) anciently made by procuring victuals and 
other provisions in kind. In all visitations made by bishops and 
archdeacons, the law provided that the charge thereof should be 
answered by the procurations then due and payable by the inferior 
clergy.

Palace of St. Sepulchre. — The archbishop of Dublin's chief manor 
of St. Sepulchre adjoined the Liberties of the city, and extended over 
parts of the ancient parishes of St. Peter, St. Kevin, and St. Nicholas. 
The manor house or palace stood close by St. Patrick's Cathedral, 
and is now a station of the mounted police of the city. In 1326, it is 
described as containing *' a stone hall, badly roofed with shingles and 
weak, a chamber annexed to the said hall, a kitchen, a chapel badly 
roofed, valued at nothing, because nothing can be received from 
them, but they need much repair. And there was there a certain 
prison, now broken and thrown to the ground." The ruined state of 
the palace may have been occasioned by the frequent absences of the 
archbishop, but it was probably injured in the firing of the suburbs 
during Bruce's invasion. (Notices of the manor of St. Sepulchre, by 
James Mills, u.¥l.i,k., Journal R. H. A. A, /., 1889.)

Arland ITschere was a merchant of Dublin, mayor of the city in 
1469, and ancestor of Archbishop Ussher. He founded the family 
of the name, a very full account of which in its numerous branches 
is supplied in the Rev. W. Ball Wright's Memoirs of the Ussher 
Family, The Christian name Arland, also called Arlantor and 
Arlanton, borne by many of its members, is the same as Orlando or 
Roland. Arland Ussher married, 1st, Alson Taylor, of Swords, and 
2ndly, Anne Berford, by both of whom he left issue, and died 7th 
January, 1479, as recorded in the Obits of Christ Churchy to the works 
of which he bequeathed 5 marks. 

Tutor. — The word nutricus has been so translated in the sense of a 
guardian, or one who looks after {tueri\ but it might perhaps, with 
propriety, have been rendered * foster-father,' as one that nourishes or 
brings up. The Greek rpo^fv^ a rearer or foster-father, is said, in 
Du Cange, to be equivalent to nutricius. 

Chapel of the Holy Trinity of the Cathedral Church, Dublin.— 
The Journal (1564-5) of Peter Lewys, precentor of Christ Church 
Cathedral, and proctor of the works, which is in Trinity College 
Library, and which gives an account of the expenses of rebuilding 
the cathedral, mentions this chapel as in a dangerous state : the 
upper part being ready to fall, had to be pulled down lest it should 
break the roof of the cloister. 

A fraternity was connected with this chapel, as the master and 
wardens were appointed overseers of the missal bequeathed to its altar 
by John Gogh. 

Page 40. 

Principal. — In the will of James, Earl of Ormond and Ossory, 
loth March, 37 Henry VIII. (1546) inrolled in the Patent Rolls of 
Chancery, his son and heir was to have the ** principals " of all his 
goods, like as he himself had of the lord his father. In the case of 
John Gogh, the testator, his son is to have his "principal," or his 
share of the goods at his election. 

At p. 160 will be found a direction in the will of Joan Steven, 
that out ofthe entire of all her moveable goods, the ** principal" was to 
be delivered to her son and heir, without division, according to the 
custom of the country. In these cases it is not apparent what this 
principal consisted of. 

Page 44. 

The Church of Castleknook {i,e, the castle on the hill) was 
dedicated to St. Brigid. About 1177, this place was bestowed by 



2o6 Notes. 

Strongbow on his friend, Hugh Tyrrel, who founded a castle here, 
and took the title of baron of Castleknock : his son Richard, in 
1 1 84, in honour of St. Brigid, endowed an abbey for canons regular 
of St. Augustine. Castleknock is a parish in the barony of the same 
name, 3} miles from Dublin. 

The ruins of the old church of Mulhnddart, which was dedicated 
to the Blessed Virgin, still exist. In 1532 King Henry granted a 
license by letters patent, to found here a guild or fraternity of the 
Blessed Virgin Mary, with power to erect a chantry for celebration of 
divine service. 

Clonsilla Church was dedicated to St. Mochta, whose name is 
still preserved in a well in the neighbourhood. Mulhuddart and 
Clonsilla are also situated in the barony of Castleknock. 

Page 47. 

Janeco Dartas. — This family held extensive properties in the 
counties of Meath and Dublin, and Janeco Dartas, probably grand- 
father of the Janeco mentioned as her landlord in Joan White's will, 
had been granted custody of various manors, among them those of 
Trim, Ardmulchan, and Ardbraccan, in the early years of Henry IV.'s 
reign. In the tenth year of that monarch he and his son had a special 
grant of lands near Lucan, and for portion of this the testatrix owed 
rent. So wealthy was the family that about the time of this grant 
they intended constructing vessels of war at Drogheda, for the purpose 
of resisting the Scotch and other enemies of the king, of which 
the Patent Rolls contain particulars. Janeco must have died about 
1428, as custody of his lands in Meath and Uriel (he being deceased) 
was then granted, and a little later his executors, namely his wife 
Elizabeth, Janeco Dartas, Samson Dartas, and Nicholas Bailiff were 
ordered to be paid arrears of annuities. Janeco Dartas, his son, who 
succeeded him in the property, was admiral of Ireland, and the king 
appointed deputies in the ports by the sea-coast as long as he held 
that office. During the reign of Henry V., Janeco Dartas is mentioned 
as constable of the castle of Dublin, and he had a grant for life of the 
manors of Esker, Newcastle Lyons, and Saggard : he must have been 
a man of varied qualifications, as in 1422 he was appointed (with 
others) a commissioner to inquire into the weighing of gold, &c. 

Page 48. 
Trough with two trundles. — Keeve trough was a name in common 
use for a cuva, or brewing-vessel. Trundle or trendill was a small 
wheel or castor, and a trundle-he^ was a small one, moving on such, 
which ran in under the principal bed, being drawn out at nig^ht.

Church of St. Mary, Howth. — This was a typical collegiate church, 
served by a college of three or more priests, as St. Nicholas, Galway, 
and St. Mary's, Youghal. The original church was founded by the 
Danish prince, Sitric, in 1042 ; and in 1 190, when Archbishop Comyn 
built St. Patrick's as a collegiate church, Howth became one of the 
thirteen prebends assigned to it. In 1235, an amalgamation was 
effected with St. Nessan's church on Ireland's Eye, which was 
probably closed, and Sitric's church was enlarged, and dedicated to 
the Blessed Virgin Mary. The church, so enlarged, remained without 
alteration until the end of the 14th or beginning of the 15th century. 
For the fullest description of it, see No. 2 of Papers on the ** Antiqui- 
quities of Howth," contributed to the Journal, R,S,A,I., 1896, by 
its Hon. Secretary, Robert Cochrane, f.s.a. 

Churches of Baheny, Coolook, and Little Orange.— The ancient 
church of Raheny (Enna's rath or fori) probably stood on the site of the 
now disused one in the village, on portion of the raised ground or rath 
that gave its name to the parish ; the latter one, rebuilt in 17 12, was 
dedicated to St. Assan. This church was formerly appropriated to 
the prior and convent of the Holy Trinity, but, by exchange, was 
attached to St. Mary's Abbey. 

Coolock {Jittle comer) church was dedicated to St. Brendan, and 
the present church was erected on its site. The ancient one belonged 
to the prior of Llanthony, Gloucester, for his own use. 

Little Grange was a small chapel, which stands in what are now 
the grounds of Grange House, near Baldoyle, and it was used for 
service up to 161 5. The west gable has a double-arched bell -turret, 
and the ruins are still very perfect. The church was appropriate to 
the canons of All Hallows, Dublin, and the land round was used as 
their farm. At the dissolution of the monasteries, their possessions 
here were granted to the corporation of Dublin, who are still the 
proprietors. 

Page 53. 

The Church of Lnak was originally dedicated to St. Mac Cullin, 
who died there in 497, but when granted to St. Mary's Abbey by the 
Norman conquerors, it was re-dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. 
The former saint is supposed to have been buried in a cave (Imca) 
at this place, hence its name. Dalton, in his History of the County 



2o8 Notes. 

of Dublin^ notices the fact of a chapel within the church of Lusk 
having been dedicated to St. Maurus, to which chapel the testatrix, 
Alice Cassell, left ii**. 

Bishop Reeves, in his Paper on ** Townland Distribution in 
Ireland" {Proceedings, R.IA., vii., 482), says that at Whitestown, in 
the parish of Lusk, are the ruins of a chapel and cemetery, beside 
which is St. Maurus' Well, where, on the 15th January, there was 
wont to be an annual commemoration of the patron saint, for whom 
our ancestors under the Norman kings, had a particular veneration. 
The Acta Sanctorum and the Lives of the Saints, by Rev. Alban 
Butler, contain fuli accounts of St. Maurus, son of Equitius, a noble, 
who placed him under the care of St. Benedict, to be brought up in 
piety and learning. This occurred in the year 522, the youth being 
then twelve years of age. In 543 Maurus, under King Theodobert, 
founded the famous Benedictine abbey of Glanfeuil, now called St. 
Maur-sur-Loire, and he, equally with St. Benedict, was regarded as 
the author of the Benedictine rule. Cf. Chaucer, " The reule of Seint 
Maure or of Seint Beneit " {Prol, C. T.). In 581 he resigned the 
abbacy, and, passing the remainder of his life in solitude, died on 
iSth January, 584. The saint's remains were translated to S. Pierre 
des fosses, near Paris, in 868, and in 1750 were removed to the abbey 
of St. Germain des Pr6s, where they are preserved in a rich shrine. 
His name appears in the ancient French Litany of Alcuin, and in 
the Martyrologies of Florus, Usuard, and others. The parish of 
Lusk had many foreign settlers in the 12th and 13th centuries, and 
the dedication of this chapel in the parish church to a saint so 
venerated among the Normans, is a proof of their presence. 

Page 56. 

The Church of Olasnevin {Glaise-Naeidhen, i.e. NaiedMs streamlet^ 
was dedicated to St. Mobhi, its founder, and belonged afterwards 
to the prior and convent of the Holy Trinity. At Milverton, about 
3 miles north of Lusk, is a holy well, called St. Movee's well, which 
is near the remains of a small chapel, dedicated to the same saint, 
who died on the 12th October, 544. He was known as Clairaineach 
{the flat-faced), probably on account of the ravages inflicted on his 
features by cancer, of which he was a victim. This saint established 
a school in connexion with his monastery, a description of which is 
given by St. Columba, and his pupils dwelt in huts beside the river 
Tolka. In 1178 archbishop Laurence O'Toole granted the place to 
the church of the Holy Trinity, which had one of its granges here. A 
list of the tenants, circa 1326, will be found in the appendix to the 
Account Roll of the Priory, edited by Mr. James Mills, if.R.i.At.

Notes. 209 

The Clmrch of the Holy Trinity, Dublin, was founded in 1038 by 
Sitric, son of Aulif, the Danish prince of Dublin, who gave to Donogh, 
the bishop, a place to erect a church in honour of the Blessed Trinity. 
In 1 1 63 St. Laurence OToole caused the brethren of the monastery 
there to become canons regular of the order of Arras, a branch of the 
Augustinian order. In 1180 were brought thither from Armagh, a 
stone altar, and the "staff of Jesus," which St. Patrick used to carry, 
and crowds of pilgrims flocked to the place for the purpose of 
venerating such sacred relics. In the convent of the Holy Trinity 
was usually performed the ceremony of receiving the homage of such 
native chiefs as entered into alliance with the English govern- 
ment, and in its great hall, down to the i6th century, the mayor of 
Dublin was sworn into office each year. TTie Book of Obits and 
Martyrology of this church was edited with a very learned intro- 
duction, for the Irish Archaeological Society, by Dr. James Henthom 
Todd, S.F.T.C.D., .and the Account Roll of the Priory, 1 337-1 346, 
recently appeared as an extra volume of the Royal Society of Anti- 
quaries, under the editorship of Mr. James Mills, m.r.i.a. A very full 
account of the church is in Gilbert's History of Dublin, 

The Monastery of St. Thomas the Martyr, Dublin, was founded 
in 1 177 for canons of the congregation of St. Victor, a branch 
of the canons regular of the order of St. Augustine : this was a royal 
foundation, its origin being due to King Henry II., and it was the 
first of the Victorine order in Ireland. The site of the house was in 
what is now called Thomas Court, and at the dissolution the possessions 
were granted to the Brabazon family. 

The Monastery of St. Mary the Virgin, near Dublin, was a Danish 
foundation, and dates from about 948, immediately after the con- 
version of the Danes of Dublin to Christianity. It stood in what 
was anciently known as Clunlif, portion of which became Ostmans- 
town (now called Oxmantown), where they had their earliest settle- 
ment, and was originally a Benedictine house, being afterwards 
changed to the Cistercian order. In 1156, the abbot and chapter of 
Savigny, the head of many Cistercian establishments, ordained that 
their house of St. Mary in Dublin should be administered by the abbot 
of Buildwas, in Shropshire. Sir J. T. Gilbert has edited the chartu- 
laries of this abbey in the Rolls Series. 

Church of Clondalkin. — This place is in the barony of Upper- 
cross, county Dublin, 5 miles south-west from the city. The old 
church was dedicated to St. Mochua, or Machotus, the first abbot of 
the ancient house here, and it had three altars, in honour of St. Mary,

St. Brigid, and St. Thomas respectively. In 1179 Pope Alexander 
confirmed Clondalkin to the see of Dublin. A transcript of the con- 
veyance of MacGilleholmoc and his wife of their ancient inheritance 
here to the use of its church is preserved in the Cred^ Mihi, When 
Archbishop Henri de Loundres established the Deanery of St. Patrick's, 
he assigned for its support the church of Clondalkin.

Church of St. Michan. — The parish of St. Michan was for six cen- 
turies the only Dublin city parish on the north side of the Liffey. An 
early colony of Danes settled here, and from them the district was called 
Ostmanstown, which became corrupted into Oxmantown; on embracing 
Christianity, these settlers built a church, which they dedicated to St. 
Michan, whose name is found under 25th August in the calendar, and 
who is styled ** bishop" and "confessor" in the Book of Obits of Christ 
Church. The south aisle of this church was sacred to St. Sythe, or 
Osyth. 

Page 59. 

Church of Balroihery. — This parish is in the barony of Bal- 
rothery East, Co. Dublin, and about the year 1200, the archbishop 
gave the church to the religious house of Tisternagh, or Kilbixy, in 
Westmeath. The name is derived from BaiU-a-ridert (the town of 
the knights), and the church, which was portionary to the preben- 
dal church of Lusk, was dedicated to St. Peter. Bishop Reeves 
wrote notes for a history of the parish, which were expanded and 
printed in the form of a lecture. 

Donaghmore is in the barony of Lower Navan, i^ miles from the 
town of the same name. An abbey was planted here by St. Patrick, 
who placed St. Justin over it ; there is a round tower close by, and the 
ruins of a small church with a high, circular-headed arch, supporting 
part of a belfry, still remain. 

Churohtown, 3 miles from Trim, where are some small remains 
of the old church, with a burial ground. 

Bective lies 3 miles from Navan. A Cistercian monastery, 
known as De Beatitudine, was founded here in 1 146 by O'Melaghliny 
king of Meath, and dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. This house 
and the abbey of St. Thomas, Dublin, had a dispute as to the body of 
Hugh de Lacy, which was decided in favour of the latter. 

Bataine is in the barony of Lower Navan, Co. Meath.

Servienti. — Taken in connexion with the mention of rent due, 
immediately preceding, this might be translated serjeant — an official 
of a manor, especially as the word used for servant in this Register is 
famulus. In the Testamenta Karhol^ however, in which the word 
serviens continually occurs, it can only mean a domestic servant, and 
in Walter of Henley's Husbandry^ serianz is uniformly translated 
servant, though in some instances it may rather have been intended 
for the Serjeant of the manor. 

Page 62. 

Bell. — The pecia co-operta, or covered piece, was familiarly known 
as a *' bell," and the vasa enea was always so translated. 

Page 64. 

The Clmrcli of Leokno, now Piercetown Laundy, is in the barony 
of Duleek, and in the Taxation of 1306, the Hospitallers were stated 
to be rectors. An abbey was said to have been founded here in 750, 
and some remains of the old church still exist. 

Page 65. 

Churoli of Oraoe Dien (near Swords).— This was the church of the 
most extensive nunnery in Co. Dublin, founded for an order of regular 
canonesses of St. Augustine by archbishop Comyn, about the year 
1 190, and the establishment became the great educational one for 
girls in Ireland in the Middle Ages. All that now remains of this 
once famous house are the foundations of the principal building, some 
twenty-seven yards in length by seven in breadth, and a flat tombstone, 
on which can be traced the name ** Johannes Hurley." 

Gratuity. — The contracted word so translated may be a mistake 
for quarterium or quartarium, a quarter (or eight bushels) of com or 
grain. In the Testamenta Karleol, occurs **unum quartarium aven- 
arum," as also, ** unum quarterum ordei "; and as Cecily Langan had 
wheat and oats, and a store in her haggard, she probably intended a 
charitable bequest to the church for her soul, or that some grain 
should be given as a gratuity to the poor. 

Page 66. 

A Crannoo was a measure of corn in Ireland, each crannoc con- 
taining, according to different authorities, half-a-quarter, one quarter, 
and two quarters. Crannock, or crannog, in Irish, was a basket or

hamper for holding com, which was supposed to hold the produce of 
seventeen sheaves, and to be equal to a British barrel. 

Mr. James Mills, in the Account Roll of the Holy Trinity^ states 
that the crannoc dropped out of use after the end of the 14th 
century ; this is probably the case, so far as its use as a measure 
of corn, but in the Register it is found, at the end of the 15th 
century, as a measure for malt, salt, and saltpetre.

William Brekesper.— In a Christ Church Deed of 1496, William 
Brekesper is one of several who deposed that the prior and convent 
of the Holy Trinity were the true rectors of Anilyffy, from Isold's 
fount to the Barfote, and entitled to tithes of fish taken therein. At 
p. 134 of this volume the name of Nicholas Brekesper, servant, will 
be found.

Abbess of Hogges. — In 1147, Dermot, King of Leinster, founded 
an abbey for nuns of St. Augustine, in a village called Hogges, near 
the east end of Dublin, close to the site of the present St. Andrew's 
Church, to which house none under the age of thirty were admissible. 
The name Hogges is supposed to be derived from the Teutonic word 
** hoge" or ** hoga" — a small hill or sepulchral mound, a conjecture 
borne out by the vestiges and remains found close by in 1646, as 
described by Sir James Ware. In ancient documents the nuns of this 
establishment were called ** Moniales Sanctae Mariae juxta Hogas." 
The abbess owned Calliaghstown, near Rathcoole, and also Rathgar. 

Page 70. 

Altar of St. Sithe. — ^This altar was situated in the south aisle of 
St. Michan's Church. Syth, or Osyth, daughter of Frewald, a prince 
of Mercia, commemorated as St. Silhe, virgin, in the calendar on 
13th May, though contracted in matrimony to a king of the East 
Angles, lived a virgin, and was martyred in 870 by the Danes. In 
notes on the imagery of Henry the Seventh's chapel, by T. J. 
Mickelthwaite, which appeared in Archceologia XLVii. 370, occurs 
the following: — "South aisle: tenth bay. 2. A young woman, 
richly dressed, with long hair and turban head dress. She reads 
from a book which she holds in both hands ; a pair of beads hangs 
on her right wrist. This is St. Sythe.'' A light was dedicated to Ibis 
saint in St. Mary's, Carlisle. 



Notes. 213 

In a Quo Warranto Roll, King's Bench, Michaelmas Term, 9 
James 1., are inrolled some l^gal proceedings in connexion with 
the guild which used St. Sithe's altar in St. Michan's. Sir John 
Davis, attorney-general, filed an information against Peter Veldon, 
Nicholas Allen, and Richard Mackan, as master and wardens of the 
guild of St. Mary and St. Sithe in St. Michan's church, Ostmantown, 
to show cause why, without royal warrant, they had become incor- 
porated, &c. They answered that King Edward IV., in the :6th 
year of his reign, by charter, under the great seal, had granted to 
William, bishop of Meath, Sir Rowland Fitz Eustace, chancellor of 
Ireland, Philip £ermyngham, Robert Dowdall, James Aylnier, Simon 
Fitz Rery, Arland Usher, Thomas Fitzsymons, Robert West, and 
others, that they should form a guild under the above name, with 
power to elect masters, &c. The record is imperfect, breaking oflf 
abruptly, so that we are left in ignorance of the conclusion of the 

matter. 

Page 72. 

John Pnroell was, according to Ware's Annals and Harris's 
Hibemica, abbot of St. Thomas's in 1486-8, but for how long prior 
to the former, and subsequent to the latter date, he held the office is 
not known. Richard Forster was abbot in 1476, and Walter Walsh in 
1505, so that this document must bear date between those years; but 
there appears to be something spurious about it, as Edmund Ouldhall, 
a Carmelite friar of Norwich, who is mentioned in it as bishop of 
Meath, had died in 1459, having sat as bishop from 1450. The 
bishops who held the See during the abbacy of John Purcell were 
William Shirwood and John Pain. It is matter of regret that the 
document is incomplete, and were volume 11. of the Registers of St. 
Thomas's Abbey published, there is every probability that we should 
be in possession of an accurate transcript of so important a fulmin- 
ation on the part of the monastery. In his Preface to vol. i.y Sir 
J. T. Gilbert says that several royal, papal, curial, and miscellaneous 
documents in connexion with this house are preserved in another 
Register, and adds that *' The publication of it, as the complement of 
the present volume, would render generally accessible new and valu- 
able historic material now surviving only in a single manuscript." 

Page 73. 

Appropriation was the annexing a benefice to the use of a religious 
body politic, which thereby became perpetual incumbent ; the churches 
in the diocese of Meath appropriate to St. Thomas's, included those of 
Donaghmore, Trevet, Dunshaughlin, Ratoath, Scurlogstown, Laracort 
and Syddan.

Portioiiers. — Colonus partiarius was a tenant farmer who paid his 
landlord a proportion of the crop, instead of a fixed money rent ; one 
who (as it were) went shares in the profit of the lands with his land- 
lord, hence a tenant by custom. In the Household Roll of Bishop 
Swinfield {Camden Society)^ the editor has a note on a parish, the 
incumbent of which is described as a portionist. The word implies 
one who shares in an office or its profits with others, and such have 
been held to be the remnant of collegiate establishments, or offsets 
from a station, where priests abode together as a fraternity, ofi&ciating 
in several chapels, and sharing in the ecclesiastical emoluments of 
their district. 

Exorcists. — The lesser orders in the Christian Church were four — 
ostiarius, lector, exorcista, and acolythus. The functions of the exor- 
cists extended to the expulsion of evil spirits by imposition of hands on 
possessed persons, on those recently baptized, and on catechumens. 
The ceremony was always accompanied by aspersion, and the name 
** benett " was doubtless taken from the aqua benedicta, or possibly 
from the vessel called in French, " b^netier," that contained the holy 
water. " Benett, id est adjurator vel increpator, a benette or a con- 
juror" {^Prompt* Pafv,), 

Holy water clerks. — The holy water clerk (aquebajulus) was the 
official who carried the holy water vessel in processions and benedic- 
tions, and scholars in minor orders were always to be preferred for 
this office (Synod of Exeter, 1287). In small parishes, he acted as 
sacristan, and rang the bell. By a constitution of Pope Boniface, the 
aquebajelus was to be a poor clerk, appointed to the office by the 
curate of the church ; he had to serve the priest at the altar, read the 
epistle, and carry the holy water vessel, &c. He was, in fact, a 
** poor scholar," and the office was bestowed on him, to assist him in 
his studies. After the Reformation, the office merged in that of 
parish clerk. In a volume of Depositions in the ecclesiastical court 
of Durham, published by the Surtees Society^ among those connected 
with the rebellion of 1569, we find that one Henry Hutcheson, in his 
examination, declared that ** he knoweth not that one James Croft 
hore any holy water through the parish." In the Babees Book, Manners 
and Meals in the olden time, edited by Mr. Furnivall for the Early 
English Text Society, Plate VIII. contains a representation of a holy 
water clerk, carrying a holy water pot in the right hand, and a sprinkler 
raised in the left, as in the act of aspersing.

Clmrch of St. Canice the Abbot, at Finglas {Finnglaise^ pure 
stream). — Finglas, which was one of the manors of the archbishop 
of Dublin, is partly in the barony of Nethercross and partly in that of 
Coolock, and lies 3 miles north from Dublin. An abbey was founded 
here at an early period (tradition says by St. Patrick), of which 
St. Canice, or St. Kenny was the first abbot, and his festival was kept 
on I ith October. He was born in 516, and was one of the disciples 
of St. Finian of Clonard, and a friend of St.Columbkille. Ussher states 
that a life of the saint was long preserved in this church. In the 
churchyard has been re-erected the ancient cross of Nethercross, which 
had been buried by the peasantry in Cromwell's time, to save it from 
desecration. Rev. Robert Walsh, vicar of Finglas, succeeded in 
unearthing it, after it had lain hidden in the ground for 160 years, and 
it now stands in the north-east comer of the graveyard. 

Page 77. 

St. Audoen's Clmrch was founded by the Normans (but at what 
date is uncertain), and dedicated to the patron saint of Rouen, the 
capital of their fatherland. St. Audoen, bishop of Rouen, died in 
683, and his cathedral church is regarded as one of the finest speci- 
mens of pointed Gothic in the world. This saint's name is not 
found in the Irish calendars, but he was highly venerated by the 
French settlers in Dublin. Archbishop Comyn conferred the church 
on Grace Dieu nunnery, but his successor, Henry de Loundres, 
bestowed the church of Ballymadun in exchange, and St. Audoen's 
was allocated to the Treasurer of St. Patrick's. 

Page 78. 

Sir Thomas Newbery, Knight. — From Gilbert's Corporation 
Records^ it appears that he was mayor of Dublin in 1457, 1460-1, 
1463, and in 1464 he appears in that capacity as a knight. The 
same office was again conferred on him in 1467-8. 

On the fourth Friday after 25th December, 1468, none were 
admitted to the franchise of the city, because the mayor, Sir Thomas 
Newbery, was absent in the sickness of which he died. He died on 
2 1 St January, 1469-70, and William Grampe was chosen mayor in 
his stead. Thus Sir Thomas was not only mayor a number of times 
but he died while in office. An entry in the Assembly Roll of 1459 
records that as he held a house on the key by the crane, for which he 
paid the town 3' 4'' ; he was in future to have a lease for sixty years.

at a rent of ii** a year; and an entry two years later contains a grant 
for ever to Newbery, of a loft which he had covenanted to build over 
the porch between the crane and a certain shop, he paying i** annually. 
A Christ Church Deed of 1481 (1030) mentions land formerly held by 
him in St. Michaers-lane. 

Cup called a nut. — These cups were formed of cocoa nuts, 
mounted on stands ; they were generally covered and formed a 
kind of small urn. '*A standing black nutte" occurs in a will in the 
third volume of the Fork Wills, published by the Surtees Society, 
Uraula is translated not or nut — a sort of small vase. Four nuts, 
with three covers, were preserved in Winchester Cathedral at the 
Dissolution.

Buckram bed. — French, bougran. Italian, bucherame^ from bucare^ 
to make holes. A coarse linen cloth, stiffened with glue, used in 
garments to keep them in form; also used for covering cloth and 
other merchandize.

Nicliolafl Sutton, baron, was son of William Sutton, also a baron 
of the Exchequer. His will is to be found exemplified among the 
Christ Church Deeds (No. 327). It is dated in 1478, and there is a 
legacy to his father for his blessing, as from the depositions in a 
prior deed (No. 315): he appears, on his deathbed, to have expressed 
sorrow for injury done his parent by detaining his goods, for which 
he wished to make restitution, as well as for the house he dwelt in 
against his father's consent. Yet another deed (No. 336), contains a 
certificate of the mayor and bailiffs of Dublin as to how land may be 
acquired by testament in Dublin city, and it specially states that the 
will of Nicholas Sutton was not enrolled in the Tholsel, in accord- 
ance with the regulations.

Church of St. Nicholas, Kinsaley.— Prior to the conquest, Kin- 
saley, which is in the barony of Coolock and county Dublin, was 
owned by Hamund, son of Torkill; and Christ Church Deed^ No. I 
(1174), contains a grant to him of the place from Earl Richard, on 
behalf of the king, he paying two marks to the canons of Holy 
Trinity church, to supply lights before the Holy Cross. Strongbow 
afterwards gave Kinsaley absolutely to Christ Church ; and the church 
founded here, dedicated to St. Nicholas of Myra, became one of the

chapels subservient to the mother church of Swords. The name 
denotes head of the brtne^ and shows that in ancient times the sea 
came up to the borders of the parish. 

Page 84. 

The Church of Malahide stands within the demesne, close beside 
the castle; and Dr. Walsh thinks that its ruins, which are very 
perfect, show it to have been one of the finest and largest of the 
Fingal churches; for centuries it has been the burial place of the 
Talbots, the lords of the soil, to whom the manor was granted by 
Henry 11. In the centre of the nave is a recumbent t^^y and altar 
tomb of Matilda Plunket, wife of Richard Talbot, who had as her first 
husband the Baron of Galtrim, killed on his wedding day. She, 
''maid, wife, and widow in one day," is the subject of Gerald 
Grifi&n's well known ballad. 

Page 85. 

Maser Cups. — Maser or mazer (Dutch maeser = maple or a knot of 
maple wood) was a wood of mottled grain much used for making 
drinking cups, and the more highly esteemed in proportion to its 
graining. When surrounded by bands or rings of richly chased metals, 
the cups became very valuable. The maser was also known as murrus 
or murra, from a fancied resemblance to the myrrhene vases of olden 
times, and the cyphus murreus is frequently mentioned in wills and 
documents. 

In the ballad of Robin Hood occur the lines : — 

'* They took away the silver vessell 
And all that they myght get, 
Peces, mazars and spoones, 
Wolde they not forgete." 

In ArchcBologia (l. 129), Mr. W. H. St. John Hope has written 
exhaustively on the subject of these English mediaeval drinking bowls ; 
the paper is illustrated, and has an appendix, which gives a list of 
those mentioned in old wills, &c. Mr. Hope enumerates five points 
as being characteristic of this goblet, namely — the bowl, the band, the 
print, the foot and the cover. At present there are only about fifty 
specimens known to exist in England, and their bowls are invariably 
plain, the beautiful grain of the maple wood being considered orna- 
mental enough. Those mounted on feet were known as standing cups, 
murra stantes, Mr. Cripps, in his Old English PlatCy deals with the 
literature of the subject. The bands on maser cups frequently bore 



2i8 Notes. 

inscriptions, and had names bestowed on them. In the report of the 
Hist. MSS. Commission on the records of Canterbury appear the fol- 
lowing examples of such inscriptions : — 

** God and Seynt Martin 

Blysse owre ale and blysse 
owre wyn." 
" God blesse both the and me, 

and the Holy Trinity, 

Amen ! So mothe yt be." 

As instances of such cups having names given them in this country, 
Robert Passavaunt, in 1439, bequeathed his cup, called '* grubbe " or 
"grobb," to his mother for life, and afterwards to Holy Trinity 
church, and his cup, called *' piper," to John Gierke, chaplain 
{Chris/ Church Deeds, 290). 

Pagb 86. 

Church of St. Mary of the Dam. — This ancient church, which was 
most probably erected before the twelfth century, stood on the south 
side of Cork-hill, nearly on the site of the present City Hall, and took 
its title " del dam " from a neighbouring mill dam. It lay close to the 
east gate of the city, known as the gate of St. Mary le Dam, which 
opened to the avenue leading from Dublin Castle to Hogges-green, 
named from it Dame-street. Sir John Gilbert, in his History of 
Dublin^ says that the church was granted by Henry de Loundres, 
archbishop, to the treasurer of St. Patrick's, as part of the corps of 
his dignity (1219-25). The diadem used in the coronation of Lambert 
Simnel in Christ Church Cathedral in 1487 is believed to have been 
taken from the head of a statue of the Virgin Mary in this church. 

During the reign of Henry VIII. this parish was united with that 
of St. Werburgh, and in 1589 Richard Thompson, treasurer of St. 
Patrick's, demised to Sir George Carew, for 61 years, the house, 
messuages, church, and churchyard of St. Mary by the castle ; soon 
after, the premises became the property of Richard Boyle, Earl of 
Cork, who erected, on the site of the church, his historic town 
residence, known as Cork House. Sir John Gilbert notes that the 
name, Salutation-alley, which was to the east of Cork House, was 
derived from its proximity to the Church of St. Mary. The only 
monument now known to have had a place in this ancient sanctuary* 
is inserted in the south wall of St. Werburgh's Church 2 it represents 
a knight in armour, with his lady by his side, bears the Geraldine 
arms, and is supposed to commemorate either John, sixth £ail of

Hughes's Church of St. Werburgh.)

Smotliesooiirt. — In the Rental and Customal of Christ Church 
Priory, circa 1326, Thomas Smoth is stated to have held lands of the 
priory; he had lands in Donnybrook, named, from the family, 
Smothescourt, now known as Simmonscourt. 

Page 88. 

St. Laurence land. — There is a Lawrencetown (or Laureston) in 
the parish of Finglas, which, being close to Mulhuddart, may be 
the place indicated here, as St. Laurence lands (the only ones of the 
name in the county), near Ballyfermot, were crown property, and were 
leased in 1561 to Sir John Allen. 

Page 90. 

Cemetery of St. Finian, Esker. — The name Esker signifies a sandy 
ridge, or a line of low sand-hills, and the Esker Riada extended from 
Dublin across to Co. Galway. The ruins of the ancient church here 
are 27 ft. by 6 ft., and the belfry gable is perfect. It was a chapelry, 
subservient to the church of Clondalkin, but to which of the numerous 
SS. Finian, bishops, it was dedicated is not apparent. The two most 
highly venerated were St. Finian of Lindisfarne (17th February), 
and St. Finian of Clonard (12th December). The tradition as to 
the patron saint's day has been lost, for, on inquiry, no one in the 
neighbourhood, at present, appears ever to have heard the date. 

The Church of Palmerstown lies at a little distance from the 
village of Palmerstown, facing Knockmaroon, but on the opposite 
side of the Liffey. The ruin stands in a graveyard, and consists of 
nave and chancel, connected by a round arch. Mr. Wakeman, in a 
Paper on ** Ante-Norman Churches in the Co. Dublin" {JounuU^ 
R.S.A.L, July, 1892, p. 105), has fully described and illustrated it. 
Within the cemetery, until some years ago, stood one of the oldest 
yew-trees in Ireland. The place derives its name from Ailred the 
Palmer (or pilgrim) who endowed the Hospital of St. John, Dublin, 
and the land and tithes of Palmerstown formed portion of its endow- 
ment.

Gerald Pitz Gerrot, Constable of Dublin Castle.— The list of con- 
stables of Dublin Castle, in the Lihtr Munerum Publicorum HibemitB^ 
ends with John Bennet, 1454, and recommences in the reign of 
Henry VIII. Fitz Gerrot's name, then, supplies a gap in the series, 
and it is possible he may have succeeded Bennet. He was Escheator 
of Meath in 1473, and appears in Ferguson's Calendar of Memoranda 
Rolls as comptroller of the coinage and deputy chancellor of the 
Green Wax during the reign of King Edward IV. ; about the same 
period, he had a custodiam of a house in Bray.

William Ifeill, of Clondalkin.— William Neill's ancestors had been 
thriving farmers in Clondalkin more than a hundred years prior to the 
date of his will, and Neillstown, in that neighbourhood, was named 
from them. Simon Neyll, one of the family, had also shops and land 
in New-street, Dublin (Manor of St. Sepulchre, by Mr. James Mills ; 
fournal^ R,H,A.A,I.y 1889). In 1355 Neyll complained against one 
William Nulaghe for breaking into his premises at Clondalkin, and 
Nulaghe pleaded that he was mere Irish, and not of the fine bloods. 
Neyll declared he came of the 0*Neales of Ulster, who enjoyed 
English liberty, and the jury found in his favour.

The Antiphonar, or antiphonary, was a Roman service book, 
which contained the invitatories, responsories, verses, collects, and 
whatever was said or sung in the choir, except the lessons. Addis 
and Arnold, in their Catholic Dictionary, explain it as the book in 
which the antiphons of the Breviary, with the musical notes belonging 
to them, are contained. In the mass, the Introit, Offertory, and 
Communion are antiphons. Ducange defines the word antiphon as 
vox reciproca, an alternate ecclesiastical song, wherein the psalms or 
hymns are chanted alternately by the two choirs. The Book of 
Lessons contained the lessons to be read in the public service, taken 
from Holy Scripture, the lives of the saints, and the writings of the 
ancient fathers and other doctors of the Church.

House of All Saints (or All Hallows).— This monastery, which 
stood near the ancient Hoggen Green, on the ground now occupied 
by Trinity College, was founded in 1166 by Dermot Mac Murrough, 
King of Leinster, for canons of St. Augustine, according to the 
Aroasian observance. A full account of the priory and its history 
will be found in the Introduction to the Register of All Hallows^ 
published by the Irish Archaeological Society in 1845, from the 
original in the Library of Trinity College, under the editorship of 
Rev. Dr. Butler. 

A visitation of the house, held in 1468, at which date William 
Stevenot or Stewnot (who appears here as apostolic delegate) was 
prior, will be found at p. 176 of the present volume. In the Intro-

Decree of an apostolic delegate.— In this decree of the apostolic 
delegate, on an appeal from a definitive sentence of the consistorial 
court of Dublin, in a matter of the presentation to the church of 
Confey (barony of North Salt, Co. Kildare), pending between William 
White and St. Thomas's Abbey, Dublin, it will be necessary to explain 
some of the technicalities of the Canon Law. If an appeal were 
made before sentence, it must have been made from a grievance in- 
flicted or from an interlocutory decree; appeal from a sentence 
could be from a definitive one only. In the case under notice, appeal 
would appear to have been made both from a grievance and a defi- 
nitive sentence. An appeal operated two effects — a suspension of the 
sentence and a devolution of the cause : it suspended the sentence 
and jurisdiction of the judge as to that cause alone wherein it is 
appealed ; but an appeal did not suspend the jurisdiction of the judge 
below, unless it was in that cause wherein an appeal was interposed. 
When an appeal was made from an interlocutory decree upon pretence 
of grievances inflicted, the judge might not proceed in the principal 
cause, on the petition of the party appellate, and pronounce a defini- 
tive sentence therein, if the appellant disallowed same ; but if the 
judge pronounced appellant's petition " bene appellatum et male judi- 
catum," he did not remit, but then began to take cognizance of the 
principal cause. 

Fatalia or dies fatales was a period of fifteen days assigned, within 
which appeals might be prosecuted—** tempus a lege praestitutum ad 
causas appellationum apud judices instruendas et terminendas." If 
an appellant neglected or refused to prosecute his appeal within the 



222 Notes. 

time assigned by the judge below, or appointed by himself, he was 
presumed to have acquiesced under the first sentence, from which he 
appealed, and the judge below, resuming his jurisdiction, might 
compel the appellant to abide by that sentence. An appeal having 
been deserted by lapse of the legal term, the office of the judge might 
be implored on the score of a lawful impediment, and the appellant 
might pray restitution against the lapse of the fatalia. The judge 
above might then take cognizance, and pronounce de restitutione 
fatalium, for he had a jurisdiction in taking cognizance, whether he 
had cognizance, and whether the appeal were deserted or not. 

The Instance of a cause was that judicial process made from contes- 
tation of a suit even to the time of pronouncing sentence, or to the 
end of three years. Where no contestation of suit was required, as 
in summary executive causes, Instance was current when the judge 
began to take cognizance of the merits. 

An interlocutory was a sentence pronounced by a judge between 
the beginning and end of a cause, touching some incident in the 
proceedings ; it did not concern the principal matter, but only 
determined some exception or other which arose in the proceedings. 
A definitive sentence should always be pronounced by the judge 
sitting on the bench or tribunal. 

As to the delegate himself, when appointed by the Pope or his 
legate, he was always to be a person of some dignity — ^a canon of a 
cathedral church at least. 

h.y\\^e's Parergon juris canonici (1726) enters most fully into all 
these questions, and may be safely trusted as a guide through all the 
intricacies of the Canon Law.

Chnroh of doghran (little stony place). — This was commonly called 
Cloghran-Swords, to distinguish it from Cloghran-Hiddart, and the 
ancient church was dedicated to St. Doulogh. It was a dependency 
of Swords, and even, in Archbishop Alan's time, the Repertorium 
Viride shows that the vicar of Swords claimed burial fees, as vicar of 
the mother church. This church became a ruin early in the seven- 
teenth century, and the west gable is now the only portion of it 
remaining.

early in the sixth century, and died in 618. He was a native of East 
Leinster. and having pursued his ecclesiastical studies under St. 
Eoghan in Ardstraw, is said to have led a hermit's life in either 
Luggela or Hollywood, before finally settling down in Glendalough, 
where he founded a far-famed monastery and city. The earliest 
mention of the Dublin church dedicated to this saint is in the Crede 
MM, circ. 1212-28: — " Ecclesia de S. Keyuino pertinet ad com- 
munam S. Patricii, sad archiepiscopus dat vicariam. £t valet x 
marcas vicaria. Archiepiscopus patronus."

Newcastle, near Lyons. — King Henry II. formed this place, which 
lies two miles west from Rathcoole, into a royal manor, and it was 
held at sundry times by the families of St. John, Bermingham, and 
LeScrope, while in 1427 the king committed the custody of the 
manor to the archbishop of Dublin to hold with his office. In 161 3, a 
charter of incorporation was granted to the town, and it obtained 
representation in Parliament. The rectory formed part of the corps 
of the archdeaconry of Glendalough. The nave of the old church, 
erected some time in the fifteenth century, has been fitted up for use 
by the Protestant community, the chancel being in ruins. In Dalton's 
History of Co. Dublin will be found the succession of the seneschals of 
the manor from 1378 to 1801.

Hooks of lent tackle. <—Loof-hooks, a tackle with two hooks for 
pulling down the sail, and assisting the tackles in a large sail under a 
stiff gale. Long tackle is a technical term, and lent tackle may be 
derived from leng = long, lengthening tackle. 

Fimble hemp. — Hemp was sown in March and April ; the first 
(female or barren hemp, called also summer hemp) is ripe in July, and 
the other (male, carl, or winter hemp), at the end of August. Mavor 
says fimble, or female, hemp is chiefly used for domestic purposes, 
carl, or male, hemp for cordage, &c. Hemp fibres are tough and 
strong, and particularly adapted for weaving into coarse fabrics, such 
as sail cloth, and twisting into ropes and cables. Tusser, under 
Husbandry for May, lays it down : 

" Good flax and good hemp to have of her own. 
In May a good housewife will see it be sown ; 
And afterwards trim it to serve at a need, 
The fimble to spin and the carl for her seed.'* 



224 Notes. 

In the notes to the Shuttleworth Accounts occurs the following, 
taken from Die, Rus. : — ** Be careful not to break what is left, be- 
cause *tis to grow near Michaelmas, and is usually called carl hemp." 

In 1553, a statute was passed for the cultivation of hemp in Eng- 
land, for fishing nets.

Sir Bobert Preston was deputy to Sir John Dynham, lord chan- 
cellor of Ireland, and on Richard, Duke of York, youngest son of 
Edward IV., being constituted, in 1478, lord deputy of Ireland, Sir 
Robert was appointed to represent him, the prince being still a 
minor. In August, 1478, he was created Viscount Gormanston, and 
he sat in the parliaments of 1490 and 1493. 

The lord of Ormond. — The Ormond family held the manors of 
Rush and Balscaddan, and its chief at this time was John, the 6th 
Earl, a nobleman who was considered the first gentleman of his age. 
The remark of King Edward the Fourth in reference to him has often 
been quoted— that if good breeding and liberal qualities were lost in 
the world, they might all be found in the Earl of Ormond. He was 
accredited from time to time as ambassador to the chief courts of 
Europe, and died in 1478 in the Holy land, whither he had journeyed 
in a fit of religious zeal and devotion.

Chnroh of StamnUin. — This parish is in the barony of Upper 
Duleek, Co. Meath, nearly six miles from Drogheda. There are 
still some remains of the ancient church, in the cemetery of which 
is the burial place of the Prestons, Viscounts Gormanston, whose 
splendid old feudal castle is in the parish.

Chnroh of Donaghmore. — This, the great churchy called also the 
chapel of St. Margaret, a.d. 1275, stood at Dunsoghly, in the barony 
of Coolock, Co. Dublin, and its ruins show it to have been an 
extensive building. A small chapel to the S.-E. has an inscription 
stating it to have been built by Sir John Plunkett of Dunsoghly, who 
died in 1582. Dr. Walsh believes St. Margaret's to have been in use 
in 1532, but it was ruined by 161 5. This chapel was one of those 
dependent on Finglas church. 

The ohnroh of Chapelmidway was a chapel attached to Kilsal- 
laghan ; its ruins stand midway between the latter and St Margaret's,

Dunsoghly (hence, perhaps, its name), but there remains no record 
of the founder or the period at which what must have been a stately 
building was erected. 

The church of Killeigh (Killeek), a parish in the barony of 
Nethercross, Co. Dublin, was one of the chapels dependent on Swords, 
which was afterwards erected into a parish church. Archbishop Alan 
called it " the most stately of the chapels of Swords." 

Peter Higley (Heygley), merchant and citizen of Dublin, is com- 
memorated in the Moriilogium of Christ Church, on 24th January, 
with a note that he bequeathed 20^. to the prior and convent, and 
20^. to the work of the house, and there is in the same volume on the 
2nd February a commemorative notice of Millane Frayne, his wife.

The Lord Deputy and Chancellor. — William Shirwood, bishop of 
Meath 1460- 148 2, was in 1475 appointed deputy to George, Duke of 
Clarence, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and, about the same time, he 
held the office of Lord Chancellor of that kingdom.

The Baron of Skreen. — ^This place was anciently called Scrinium 
Sancte Columbe, from the shrine of that saint deposited in the 
monastery here in 875. The baron mentioned was Walter Mareward, 
who had just succeeded Richard Mareward, his cousin, in the title, 
which was originally borne by the family of Feipo, or Phepoe. 
On failure of the male line, and marriage of Margaret, daughter and 
heiress of Francis Feipo, with Thomas Mareward, who was killed in 
141 4, it was assumed by the latter family. The manors of Skreen and 
Santry were included in the grant of Henry II. to Hugh de Lacy, 
who bestowed them on Adam de Feipo; and readers of the Song of 
Dermot and the Earl, edited by Mr. Goddard Orpen, will recall the 
lines : — 

** De Huge de laci vus contend 
Cum il feffa ses banms, 
E Serin ad pus en chartre, 
Adam de feipo lad pus done."

The lords of counties palatine exercised the privilege of creating 
barons, and Hugh de Lacy, on whom the palatinate of Meath was 
conferred, bestowed that title on the holders of his principal fiefs, 
many of whom neither became peers, nor were summoned to Parlia- 
ment. Mr. G. D. Burtchaell, in his account of the Fitz Geralds, 
barons of Burnchurch, in the Journal R, S, A, /. (part 4, vol. 2, 5th 
series, 1892), very ably traces the origin of these palatine titles, and 
quotes from the Carew MSS.<, a document which speaks of " divers 
gentlemen who had the appellation of barons, and yet never was any 
of them lord baron, or summoned to Parliament, whose posterity to 
this day have their denominations of barons, namely, divers of the 
Fipoes, barons of Skrine, and Marewards, barons of Skrine." 

A pedigree of the families of Feipo and Mareward will be found 
in Sir John Gilbert's Chartularies of St. Mary^s Abbey ^ vol. ii., p. 23. 

Walter Mareward, baron of Skreen, became a freeman of the city 
of Dublin in 1479, and a John Mareward was mayor in 1388 and 
1 39 1. A monument to the memory of the former was erected near 
the high altar in Skreen Church. His first wife was Margaret Plunket, 
daughter of Lord Dunsany, and his second was Matilda Darcy.

The Chnroh of St. Michael, the archangel, in High-street, was 
founded as a chapel by Donogh, bishop of Dublin, in the eleventh 
century, and Richard Talbot, a successor in the see, erected it into a 
parish church. The guild or fraternity of shoemakers, by their 
charter in 1404, was authorized to found a chantry here, and, in 1444, 
a guild was founded for the celebration of services in the chapel of 
St. Katherine, within St. Michael's church. In the reign of Henry 
the Eighth, this church, together with those of St. Michan and St. 
John, was assigned to the three principal vicars-choral of Christ 
Church. During the sixteenth century, it was said to be the most 
frequented place of worship in Dublin. The Synod Hall of the 
Church of Ireland now occupies its site.

year 1244, when in a deed conveying certain rents from St. Mary's 
Abbey to the citizens of Dublin, Walter Rotarius is described as 
residing next the church of St. Katherine (Gilbert's Hist, and Muni- 
cipal Documents J p. 480). The church had a Lady chapel, which was 
variously described in documents connected with the parish, as 
" St. Mary's chapel," "the chantry," and ** St. Mary's aisle/' In the 
Repertorium Viride the church is described as then newly rebuilt with 
a view to the safety of the parishioners, and at their expense, thfe 
earlier building having become ruinous. This parish was in ancient 
times united with that of St. James, but they became separate 
parochial cures about 17 10. St. Katherine's was a vicarage appro- 
priate to the monastery of St. Thomas the Martyr, and was 
subsequently in the patronage of the Earls of Meath. 

Losset. — ^A large flat wooden dish much used in the north of 
England. In Irish, losaid is a kneading trough; and O'Reilly, in his 
Irish Dictionary, says that, in Co. Cavan, the farmer calls his well laid 
out field his fine losset, or table spread with food. In the Calendar of 
the Patent Rolls of James I., a payment of one losset of butter out of 
Dromgagh to the prior of the vicars choral of Armagh is mentioned. 
At some distance from the east side of the tower of Tallaght church 
lies a curious stone trough of a horse-shoe form, about 4i feet long, 
supposed to have been an ancient font; the country people call it 
•* St. Mollrooney's" (St. Maelruain) losset; and Mr. Hancock, in his 
Antiquities of Tallaght, says that it is probably the identical vessel 
that Captain Allan fed his horses out of in 1612. Tradition has it 
that it was used for washing the feet of the pilgrims who frequented 
the sacred shrines at Tallaght. Several townlands in Ireland bear 
the name of Losset, the term being used not so much in allusion 
to shape (Dr. Joyce remarks) as to use and production, the word 
being applied to a productive field or good rich land. 

Mesoh Eewe. — Mash or mesh, the grains or wash of a brewery. 
The mash fat or keeve was the large tub or vessel which contained 
the malt in brewing. The " mash cive " was the sign of a house in 
Cuffe-street in 1766.

Carmarthens.— There were families named Karmardjm, Carmar- 
dyn, or Carmadine in Dublin and Kilkenny at this time. Gilbert's 
Historical and Municipal Documents shows that among the free citizens 
of Dublin, 1 225-1 250, were Thomas and Simon de Kermerdin. 
Michael de Kermerdin had land in Thomas-street in 1 263, and Adam, 
son of Ralph de Kermerdin, was a Dublin guild merchant in i2$6.

The Ifanl, the name of a village near Balbriggan, is derived from 
an ailly the rock or cliff, originally applied to the rock on which the 
castle stands. The word was shortened to fCaill^ and has come down 
to us in the form Naul, which Dr. Joyce says very nearly represents 
the pronunciation. The natives always call the place " the Naul," 
and so both the English and Irish articles are used together.

St. Maelmain of Tallaght. — ^This saint was son of Colman, and he 
is commemorated in the calendar on 7th July. Cellach, son of 
Donnchadh, King of Leinster, is said to have bestowed on him the 
site of Tallaght, where, in 769, he founded a church in honour of 
St. Michael, and collected round him a fraternity pledged to a strict 
observance of monastic rules. St. Maelmain has generally been 
regarded as only an abbot, though some authorities assert him to have 
been a bishop. The name of Tallaght is derived from the pestilence 
{tamh) which destroyed Parthalon's colony, tamhleacht being the 
plague monument, where all who died of it were buried together. 
The martyrology of Tallaght is said to have been composed by St. 
Maelmain, with the assistance of Aengus, known as the Culdee, an 
inmate of the monastery, which formed a community of Culdees. It 
is believed the saint died 7th July, 792.

John Chever was chief justice of the King's Bench, as appears by 
a deed of 1472, in the Chartularies of St Mar/s Abbey ^ which so de- 
scribes him. He was succeeded in the office by Philip Bermyngham, 
who is mentioned in his will. Chever*s name as chief justice is not

Sparyer. — ^This was the canopy or wooden frame-work over a bed, 
with the curtains which depended tentwise from it, but, as a role in 
ancient wills and documents, the word was used to denote only the 
latter. Thus, in the Shuttleworth Accounts^ black bokeram is found 
to have been the material that lined the sparver or curtains and 
canopy of a bed. Godefroi gives as the explanation of espervier (espre- 
vier), '^ I'ensemble des pieces qui composent le coucher," and cites 
from Inventories of 1380 — ** le grant esprevier vermeil, tout gamy" 
and ** ung esprevier vert, vielz garny de ciel, de dossier, de courtines 
vers et deux coultes pointes." In the Camden Miscellany ^ ^^l^^ the 
following is quoted — " Some have curtains, some sparvers, about the 
bedde, to keep away gnattes," and " a pavilion or the spervioiir of a

bed " occurs in Thomas's //a/ia« Dictionary, 1548. The etymology 
of the word is uncertain, but as a pavilion in the last quotation is 
synonymous with spervier, it is remarkable that in the patent granted, 
5 Edward IV., to the Company of Upholsterers, the tents in their 
arms are cBWedi spervers. In \htBury Wills mention is made ofsparver 
curtains, and of a bed made sparverwise ; while in an account of one 
of the Scottish kings, in 1474, allowance is made for '4artane for a 
sparwort abouin my lord prince's cradill." Nares quotes, " a happie 
woman hath as quiet sleeps and as contented wakings in a bed of 
cloth as under a sparver of tissue," and " she hid herself behind the 
sparvise and curtaine of the bed."

Cnunlin {Cruim ghlinn, the curved glen). — This was one of the 
ancient manors annexed to the crown; and successive monarchs 
granted it for various terms to the families of Jordan, Courtenay, 
Slegh, Merbury, Blakeney, &c. The Manor Court Book of Esker and 
Crumlin, 1592-7, is in Marsh's Library. It contains inquisitions, 
presentments, pleas of land, and extents of the manors, with tenants' 
names, &c. 

In the Crede Mihi, among charters and grants from John Earl of 
Moretain, lord of Ireland, is one of 1193, constituting the church of 
Crumlin a prebend attached to S. Patrick's, and in the list of Dublin

Aderrig {Ath-dearg, the red ford). — A parish in the barony of 
Newcastle, Co. Dublin. The rectory was appropriate to the vicars

thickly covered with ivy, occupy a very sequestered situation. In the

Doublet of defence. — ^The diplois, explained in the Catholicon as

originally, as it subsequently became, a garment of defence, and at a 
still later period it seems to have assumed its former character as 
a garment in ordinary use. In the fourteenth century, when the 
dublectus was worn by knights and nobles, wadded defences were

made in Paris, and tailors began to ply distinct crafts — that of the 
pourf>on/ter axid that of doubletter ; then it was that the doublet became 
a defensive military gannent. Among the munitions of Hadlegh 
castle, in 1405, were ** 25 doublettes and 24 jakkes," and the Fasten 
Letters tell us that when the Duke of Suffolk was murdered at sea, in 
1450, he was attired in a gown of russet and doublet of velvet mayUd, 
In a letter of Sir John Paston, 1473, he asks that a new vestment of 
white damask belonging to a deacon, which is amongst his other 
gear at Norwich be sent to him, adding, that he will make an arming 
doublet of it, even though at a future time, he should give a long gown 
of velvet, to make another vestment. Many instances have occurred 
(some in this Register) in which articles intended for secular use have 
been devoted to the service of the church, but there does not appear 
to be any precedent for the contrary practice ; and this intended use 
of an ecclesiastical vestment for warlike purposes, is not a little 
surprising in so good a son of the church as Sir John Paston.

The Church of St. Nicholas within the walls, situated in the street 
of that name, which was known by its present appellation as early as 
the twelfth century, was founded by Donogh, bishop of Dublin, in 
1038, and was appropriated to the Economy Fund of St. Patrick's 
Cathedral. In 1479, Edward IV. granted a patent to John Earl of 
Worcester, Elizabeth his wife. Sir Thomas Bath, John Chevir, 
Thomas Birmingham, Stephen Botiller, and John West, merchants, to 
found a chantry here in honour of the B. V. M., and its chapel was on 
the south side of the church. Archbishop Alan mentions St. Nicholas' 
as being in an impoverished condition in his time (1532), and the 
jsouth wall is recorded as having been rebuilt in 1578. Portion of the 
ancient cemetery was built over by offices of the Tholsel, when it 
was rebuilt in 1683. A gate in the west wall is called the "priest's 
gate," and some parts of the church still stand on the east side of 
St. Nicholas-street. The parish of St. Nicholas within was the 
smallest in Dublin, being little over five acres in extent, and within 
its bounds, James Ussher was born in 1580. Though the church 
rebuilt in 1707 was unroofed in 1835, the very substantial revenues 
of the chantry remained, and were paid to the last chaplain down to 
quite a recent period.

The Chnroh of St. Nicholas without the walls was dedicated to St. 
Nicholas of Myra, and occupied the north transept of St. Patrick's 
Cathedral. It fell into decay, but was restored and formed portion of 
the latter building until its renovation by the late Sir B. L. Guinness. 
The Repertorium Viride says of this and the church of St. Nicholas 
within — "Ilia quippe duplex est, tarn infra muros quam intra navem 
ecclesiae cathedralis S. Patricii in suburbiis altera, et utraque assignata 
est communi praefatae ecclesiae, suntque satis exigue et exiles hodie 
1532, veruntamen posterior surrogatur loco parochialis ecclesiae olim 
S. Patricii mutaturque altera porta vulgo consequent' altera in le comb 
non mutata nomine prout in evidentiis patet." 

A chafing dish, when of iron, was a kitchen utensil for heating 
victuals ; when of earthenware, it became a portable dish to hold live 
coals, for heating anything set on it. 

Brase-mortar. — It seems as if this were intended for brass mortar, 
as lower down, '' pint pots'* and '' flock bed " occur among the Latin 
words. '' One brass marter and an iron pistoll, lox./' occur in the 
inventory of Thomas Ronaine, Cork, 1641. 

Latten. — Auricalcum, a hard, mixed, yellow metal, closely re- 
sembling brass; its precise composition has not been ascertained, 
but in appearance it was bright-gold coloured. The word is derived 
from laiton or hton, an old French word for brass. Mr. Harland, editor 
of the Shutileworih Accounis^ in dealing with an agreement for a tomb 
to be erected to the memory of one of the Earls of Warwick (1449-50), 
notes that certain parts were to be made of the finest latten, and calls 
attention to the fact that the metal still exists on the tomb, so that the 
disputes and conjectures of antiquarians as to its real composition 
might easily be set at rest. In Stowe's Survey of London^ under 
Lothbury, occurs the passage : — '* Candlesticks, chafing dishes, spice 
mortars, and such like copper or laton works." A latten water-tap 
will be found figured in Archaologia^ vol. liii., pt. i., p. 168. 

Black pots of leather. — The large leathern cans formerly in use 
for small beer were called black jacks, and Heywood, in 1635, says 
that, when Frenchmen first saw them, they reported that the English 
used to drink out of their boots. The black pot was probably smaller.

Parish of St. Magnan. — ^This saint, also called Maighnen, or 
Maighnend, son of a chieftain named Aidus, and probably a native of 
Oirghialla, a district in the north of Ireland, was abbot of the monas- 
tery which derived its name, Kilmainan, or Kilmainham, from him, 
A. D. 606, and his festival was celebrated on i8th December. No 
particular life of the saint is known to exist, but in addition to the 
notices in the Martyrologies of Tallaght and of Donegal ^ there is a notice 
of a saint named Magnentius in the Acts of St. Cuanna (Colgan's 
Acta SS.), who is supposed to be St. Magnan. 

On the site of St. Magnan's monastery Strongbow founded, in 
1174, a priory for Knights Hospitallers, or Knights of St. John of 
Jerusalem, when it became an asylum for guests and strangers. Its 
priors sat as barons, and the house was frequently the residence of 
the Lords Deputy of Ireland, the various buildings and offices being 
very stately and commodious. Adjoining was a cemetery, the ancient 
burial-place of the monastery, now known as " Bully's Acre," where 
still stands an ancient cross, said to have been erected over the grave 
of one of Brian's sons, slain at the battle of Clontarf. 

Finola {Finnghuala = of the fair shoulders). — This name has been 
well nigh obsolete since the beginning of the eighteenth century, but 
some still retain it in the abbreviated form of l^vaXdi {^Topographical 
PoemSf O'Dubhagain and O'Huidhrin, ed. by O'Donovan).

A provocation was a call or appeal to the Holy See. By the 
statute 25 Hen. VIII. c. 19, no manner of appeals were to be had, 
provoked, or made to the Bishop of Rome, any persons having cause 
for appeal or provocation in future being compelled to take same to 
the King in Chancery. Registrar of Appeals or Provocations Spiritual

to the King in Chancery became the title of an official of that court. 
The statute 24 Hen. VIII. c. 12 speaks of the King*s subjects as 
pursuing, provoking, or procuring appeals to Rome. 

Patrick FitzLeones, or FitzLenys, was mayor of Dublin in 1477, 
1482, and 1494. In 1473 Thomas Laundey and John Bellewe assigned 
to him a messuage in High-street, Dublin, and a garden situate between 
Rupell-sireet and the city wall {Christ Church Deeds, 996). This 
family had been long resident in Dublin, for as far back as 1281 a 
Geoffrey Fitz Leonis and his wife Johanna granted to the convent of 
the Holy Trinity a rent out of Ballyardolf. In Mem, Roll. Ed. iv. 
Patrick Fitzleones of Dublin, contrary to the statute 26 Hen. VI., 
is found to have bought silver without paying the duty of 40^. per 
pound.

Indiction. — In chronology, a cycle of fifteen years. Constantine the 
Great, having reduced the time for service in the army to fifteen years, 
imposed a tax at the end of that term to pay the troops discharged. 
This introduced the custom of counting by this period. The Council 
of Nice ordained that accounts of years should no longer be reckoned 
by olympiads, but that the indiction should be used, and the Roman 
and Pontifical (so called because Papal Bulls from the ninth to the 
foiuteenth centuries generally used it) began on ist January, 313.

Church of St. Hary at Omey. — ^This was the church of the reli- 
gious house founded in 11 29 by Robert D*Oyley for Augustinian 
canons at Osney, close to Oxford, and dedicated to St. Mary. The 
church was small at first, but was rebuilt on an enlarged scale by 
abbot John Leech, and it had a number of chapels and altars within 
it. On the dissolution the building was taken down {circ. 1539). and 
its stones were conveyed to Christ Church, Oxford. 

A porthose was a portable breviary, and the word portiforium 
(which appears 2^ portifolium in the Register) is the exact equivalent 
of the English-French porthors, i.e, the book the priest carried abroad 
{portare /oras). The best MSS. of Chaucer spell it porthors, but it 
was softened to porthos, portos, portuis, and portuass. In an inven- 
tory of 1455, parish of St. £wen, Bristol, among the church books is 
enumerated '* one old portuos noted, with lessons, chapiters sawter 
and ympnes."

Pnpilla oculi. — A manual for the guidance of the priesthood, by 
John de Burgo, chancellor of the University of Cambridge. It dealt 
with the administration of the seven sacraments, and was first printed 
in 1 510 (see Introduction). 

A jack was a horseman's defensive upper garment, quilted and 
covered with strong leather. These garments were also made of steel 
or iron plates, covered with leather, fustian, or canvas, sometimes of 
skins with wool between. A full account of this species of armour 
will be found in Sir S. Meyrick's paper in Archceologia, xix.-2 24;and a 
canvas coat of the kind, which once belonged to Sir Hugh Wil- 
loughby, was shown at the Tudor Exhibition in London. In Sir John 
Fastolfs inventory, 1459 {ArchcBologta, xxi.) besides a **jakke of lynen 
cloth stuffed with mayle," there were a ** jakke of blake cloth lyned 
with canvas mayled," and ** six jakkes stuffed with home." The 
coats mentioned here would have been required probably for the 
archbishop's retainers. 

yestments. — The complete suit for the altar was usually compre- 
hended in the word vtstimentum — chasuble, stole, dalmatic, alb, amice, 
maniple, towels, altar cloth, frontlet, curtains, and case for the pix. 

Corporas cloth and cases. — ^The consecrated linen cloth, folded 
and placed upon the altar during the service of the mass, on which 
the sacred vessels rested ; when not in use it was placed in a special 
case, which was generally richly embroidered, and not unfrequently 
adorned with precious stones, ^y a provision of 1229, every church 
was bound to have **duo paria corporalium." {^qq Inventories 0/ Si. 
PauPs for lists of such). 

Two safes. — Gardeviant was originally a wallet for a soldier to put 
his victuals in ; then the name was given to a chest or basket for meat, 
and finally it was used for anything in the nature of a safe or trunk. 

Fustians were cloths over and under the sheets of a bed — a kind 
of blankets. Roger Flore (or Flower) in 1424 bequeathed two beds, 
a pair of fustians for the one, a pair of blankets for the other, and 
to each bed two pairs of good sheets {Early English Wills). King 
Henry VII. had a fustian and sheet under his feather bed, over the 
bed a sheet, and then an over-fustian above {Household Orders). 

Bluesay. — Say, from sagum^ cloth, a very light delicate serge or 
woollen cloth. It is supposed by some to have been silk, but in 
"Free Trade," by Misselden, a London merchant (1622), he enume- 
rates among the draperies of England " sayes and other manufactures 



Notes. 235 

of wool." An act of 1523 recites that, since 1467, the making of 
worsteds and sayes had increased in Norwich. Some communities of 
monks wore shirts of say. 

Holland cloth was a strong sort of linen, first made in Holland ; in 
Bristol churchwardens' accounts, 1455, eight ells of this cloth were 
used for the parson's surplice. 

Bord Alexander. — Altar cloths and vestments were made of this 
textile fabric, a kind of striped silk. In " Inventories of Religious 
Houses at the Dissolution" {ArchcBologiay xliii. «24i) it is explained as 
embroidery of Alexandria, ^^bordura Aifxandn\ an eastern fabric, bord 
in Arabic meaning striped cloth. In the Fork Registry Wills are 
several references to the use of this material for vestments, and it seems 
strange to find it used here for pillows. 

Pagb 169. 

The amice was a kind of hood made of linen, with variegated 
edges, and when worn it was turned down as a collar, over the other 
vestments, round the neck. 

About 1478 Archbishop Walton annexed the perpetual vicarage of 
St. Kevin to his choral vicar of the prebend of Cullen, who accordingly 
appeared in the choir, habited as a minor canon in token of his pre- 
eminence. The archbishop of Dublin always held the prebend of 
Cullen, and it seems to have been the custom for him to bequeath 
to his vicar in the cathedral his surplice and amice.

Hinksey (north), or Laurence, a parish in the Hormer Hundred, 
union of Abingdon, Berkshire, a quarter of a mile west of Oxford. 
It has been described as ** old, old, dry-walled, tottering, time-worn 
Hinksey, an Arcadian village, as secluded as a wood pigeon's nest," 
and readers of Matthew Arnold will remember the opening lines of 
Thyrsis — 

*' How changed is here each spot man makes or fills 1 
In the two Hinkseys nothing keeps the same." 

Watentock, a parish in the Hundred of Thame, Oxfordshire, 5 
miles west of Thame. 

Little Haseley, a township in the parish of Great Haseley, union 
of Thame, Oxfordshire (attached to the deanery of Windsor). 

Combe-long, a parish in the Hundred of Wootton, union of Wood- 
stock, Oxfordshire, 2^ miles south-west of Woodstock.

The castle mills, at Oxford, were over the river weir. Robert 
D*Oylly, founder of Osney Abbey, gave the tithes of them with the 
mansion then standing, to the canons, who subsequently lost them, but 
Richard the Second granted a moiety of the mills to Osney, which 
was held by the abbey up to the dissolution. They were a fruitful 
source of controversy between the brethren and the burgesses of 
Oxford. In Domesday^ a mill within the city was mentioned, and this 
is believed to have been the castle mill. 

Medley was a pretty little farm, used as a place of retirement by 
the abbot and brethren, which was furnished with an oratory for 
service. The island of Middeny (Medley) was the first land bestowed 
on Osney abbey, and the entry in the Annals of Osney is " eodem 
anno (1147) donata insula Middenia ecclesise nostras a civibus 
OsonisB." In the Vahr Ecclesiasttcus (Henry VIII.), Midley, then 
let by the year to Henry Roys, is enumerated among the possessions 
of the abbey.

William Lynton. — Though so infirm and of such an age, as in 
1468 to require a coadjutor, Lynton did not resign his position as 
prior of Holy Trinity until 1474, when Thomas Harrold succeeded 
him, and he did not die until the 5th October, 1480. 



Pag£ 173. 

Visitation of St. Patrick's Cathedral. — In 1457, when Philip 
Norris was dean, archbishop Tregury had a dispute with him and 
the chapter as to his right of visitation. The matter was referred 
to the arbitration of the abbot of St. Mary's, master Thomas 
Walsh, and master Richard Rowe, who decided in favour of the 
dean and chapter. On the appointment of John Walton to 
the see, in 1472, he tried to exercise ordinary jurisdiction over the 
dean and chapter, but dean Alleyn insisted on being recognised 
as ordinary in his own cathedral church. Walton opposed him and 
deprived the dean, who petitioned Parliament, which enacted a 
statute in 1474) confirming the ancient privileges of the dean and 
chapter. This recited the statute known as ** Dignitas decani et 
omnium canonicorum," and alleged that they were never disturbed in 
the enjoyment of their privileges until the time of Michael, late arch- 
bishop, when, on a reference, a decision favourable to the cathedral 



Notes. 237 

authorities was come to, notwithstanding which, the then occupant of 
the see had nearly destroyed their liberties, and by his hasty, wilful, 
and unjust proceedings, had perverted their customs. All differences 
were concluded, in 15 14, by an agreement, which specified that the 
archbishop (in visiting), being received with due honour and brought 
respectfully to the chapter house ** cum pulsatione et solemni pro- 
cessione," shall first visit the dean in his proper person, and demand 
if there be any matters peculiarly within the jurisdiction of either, 
requiring reform ; if any, they shall be amended by the archbishop, 
with the judgment of the chapter. Then, the dean having retired, 
the archbishop shall ask the canons present whether they have any- 
thing to allege against the dean, &c.

Holmpatriok. — ^This priory was founded before the coming of the 
English, by Sitricus, son of Murchard, for canons of St. Augustine, 
and the house was removed to a more commodious site, in 1220, by 
Henry de Loundres, archbishop of Dublin. Richard Brystow, men- 
tioned as late prior in the visitation of 1468, is not named by Archdall 
in his list of priors in the Monasticon, 

Taken in connexion with the complaint as to a chalice belonging 
to the bouse being held by people in Kilnew (presumably in pledge), 
it is remarkable that in the will of Thomas Horsban of Milverton, 
parish of Holmpatrick, 1538 {Dublin Diocese\ he bequeaths a chalice, 
that was in pledge, 20', to the parish church of Holmpatrick. 

In 1366, prior Stephen was found in possession of the lands of 
Kylynew, Co. Meath, and, at the dissolution, 58 acres in Killenewre 
were granted to Fitz William. Kilnew is in the parish of Duleek 
abbey, and Barony of Duleek.

Loonm and Locom appear as surnames in some of the Chritt 
Church Deeds^ and John Locumbe was a tenant of the manor of St. 
Sepulchre in 1382. 



GLOSSARY. 



Bankers. — Cloths or coverings of tapestry for benches or hall 
seats {Fr. banquier). 

Blodius. — There appears to be some disparity of opinion as 
to whether this word should be translated blue or blood-red. 
The editor of the Chronicle of Evesham renders it by the former, 
and the editor of the Obits and Martyrology of Christ Church by the 
latter ; while the Chronicle of Gloucester declares it doubtful which term 
may be used with greater correctness. In Parker's Glossary of Heraldry 
blodius is used for gulesy but the terms are not synonymous, and the 
word may express the tincture called sanguine. Du Cange has for 
blodius ** color cceruleus," and refers to bloius, ** idem forte quod 
Blavius, color coeruleus." In mediaeval Inventories blodius, as a rule, 
stands for blue. 

Bord Alexander. — A textile fabric of striped silk. See p. 235. 

Branneys. — Brandreth, or burnderthe, an iron tripod to place over 
a fire, for supporting a pot or kettle. 

Couple. — Couple (or cople) is derived from copula^ a diminutive 
from copa or cupa^ a measure of corn. See p. 191. 

Crannoc. — The general measure of corn in Ireland, the exact 
amount of which varied from time to time, from half a quarter to two 
quarters. In the present Register it is only used in connexion with 
malt, salt, and saltpetre. See p. 211. 

Daker. — A daker, or dicker, of leather consisted of ten hides 
(Gr. ScKtt = ten) ** Dacra consistit ex 10 coriis." 

Fimble. — Fimble, or female hemp, called also summer hemp, chiefly 
used for domestic purposes, as spinning. See p. 223. 

Hanger. — That portion of the sword-belt from which the weapon 
hung suspended. In Hamlet, Osric uses the word, as does Bobadil 
in Every Man in his Humour, 



Glossary. 239 

Haitinell.— In the Account Roll of the Holy Trinity, Mr. Mills has 
made the following note on this species of grain:- ** Probably a variety 
of barley, perhaps that known in England as hasty here, said to have 
been so called from the rapidity with which it came to maturity. 
That this was also a characteristic of the Dublin hastiuell may be 
inferred from p. 64, where men seem to have been employed reaping 
it before the general harvest began." In cases where this grain is 
mentioned here, it is returned as already sown in January and Feb- 
ruary. 

Huke. — A Dutch mantle, rather in the shape of a tabard, which 
in the thirteenth century was made with a hood. In addition to 
being used as portion of female attire, the huke was also a military 
garment. Skelton mentions a " huke of Lyncole green.'' 

Jack. — ^This was a horseman's defensive upper garment, quilted 
and covered with strong leather. See p. 234. 

Jerkin. — The colobium, called also armilausa, was a garment 
between a cloak and a tunic. It was a coat without sleeves, 
called by St. Jerome " tunica saccinea et lineus saccus,*' which was 
originally in use amongst the ancients, and was worn by monks and 
hermits. 

Jupa. — This seems to have been a long garment, worn by all 
classes, secular and religious of both sexes ; in North Britain a short 
cloak for women is termed a jupe. In early times, the master of a 
house, when at home, wore "jupa penulata et tunica." 

Latten. — ^A hard mixed yellow metal, closely resembling brass. 
See p. 231. 

Losset. — A large flat wooden dish, a kneading trough. See p. 227. 

Peck. — Equivalent to the bushel in Dublin. In 1585, a peck of 
wheat here contained 18 gallons, i pottle, i pint. ^Account Roll, 
Holy Trinity^ p. 213.) 

Principal. — A money composition in lieu of the ancient mor- 
tuarium. See p. 193. For another application of this word, see 
p. 205. 

Say. — A delicate serge or woollen cloth. See p. 234. 

Sparyer. — ^The canopy or curtains which hung tentwise from a 
frame over a bed. See p. 228. 

8tan^. — The fourth part of an acre of land. 



240 Glossary. 

Strike of wheats— Strike was an instrument with a straight edge, 
for levelling a measure of grain, by scraping off what was above the 
level of the top. Mensura rasa was the measure of corn, smoothed 
with a strike, while mensura cumulata was the ^xnoMui heaped, and not 
levelled. A strike was equivalent to two bushels. Beaumont and 
Fletcher have ** What dowry has she ? Some two hundred bottles, and 
twenty strike of oats." 

Taxtarine. — This was a kind of silk. "Two paire of curtaines 
of green tartarin " are mentioned in Testamenta Ve/us/a, and a ** care 
cloth of russet sylke turterone " occurs in Church Accounts, 1454. 
In the Glossary of the Ltber Custumarum^ panni tartarini are stated 
to have been thicker than what was known as tarsicus or cloth 
of Tars, being probably made of wool. In the Wardrobe Accounts, 
coronation of Richard the Third, tartaryn is named as a material for 
lining, evidently of inferior value, and the editor thinks there is reason 
for believing it to have been a mixture of linen and wool. The name 
was not improbably derived from Tartary. 

Trental. — ^A set of ihiriy masses for the dead (trigintalia). See 
p. 198. 

Way. — See note, p. 203.

THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF ANTIQUARIES 



OF IRELAND. 



This Society, instituted to preserve, examine, and illustrate all Ancient 
Monuments of the History, Language, Arts, Manners, and Customs of the 
past, as connected with Ireland, was founded as The Kilkenny ARCHi<EO- 
LOOICAL Society in 1849. Her Majesty the Queen, on December 27th, 1869, 
was graciously pleased to order that it be called The Royal Historical 
AND Archaolooical ASSOCIATION OF IRELAND, and was further pleased to 
sanction the adoption of the title of The Royal Society of Antiquaries 
OF Ireland on the 25th March, 1890. 

The Society holds Four Greneral Meetings in each year, in Dublin and in 
the several Provinces of Ireland, when Papers on Historical and Archaeological 
subjects are read. Fellows and Members elected. Objects of Antiquity ex- 
hibited, and Excursions made to places of Antiquarian interest. The Council 
meets monthly at 7, St. Stephen's-green, Dublin. Provincial and Local 
Secretaries are appointed, whose duty it is to inform the Secretary of all Anti- 
quarian Remains discovered in their districts, to investigate Local History 
and Traditions, and to give notice of all injury likely to be inflicted on 
Monuments of Antiquity, and Ancient Memorials of the Dead, in order that 
the influence of the Society may be exerted to preserve them.
